Re: [idvusers] plotting data transects with different vertical axes on same image?

Thanks, Yuan and Don!

It sounds like what I'm trying to do may not be possible in the IDV right
now, but just to make sure before turning this over to my poor NCL skills -
here's another question/option:

If I use the data transect display that docks in the dashboard, I can plot
precip vs. horizontal distance (top image in the attachment) -- it's only
in the actual Transect View separate window that the 2D rain field becomes
a problem and goes to a flat line since it doesn't have a height
coordinate.  I'd now like to simply plot different precip fields against
each other (all vs. horizontal distance - ignore terrain/altitude for now).
Can I add more than one precip field/file to the data transect view type
seen in the attached?

Thanks again very much,
Kelly
