[idvusers] Wire Frame Axis Labeling

Dear IDV Users,

In the area of ameliorating IDV publication quality graphics, we have made improvements to allow for wire frame axis labeling. In particular, if you go to the Map View, View-->Properties, Horizontal and Vertical Scale Tabs, you can turn on axis labeling, and also specify a variety of latitude and longitude formats. In addition, you can specify major increment spacing and minor increment divisions as well as the position of the "base label". The vertical axis can also be turned on and off.

A known issue is the pole projections. They are not incorrect, but are somewhat awkward since the y-axis is at roughly the same latitude at the poles. Let us know if you would like us to focus attention in this area.

This capability is currently only available in the IDV nightly build, http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/downloads/idv/nightly/index.jsp

We await your feedback.
