I succeeded in > plotting 500mb heights, so I expect that there's real data here. There is one > weird thing, though, the data comes up with a range of -infinity to > +infinity. I also see that it appears the data is expressed in Pascals, so I > manually edited the range to be 90,000 to 110,000 with a contour interval of > 400. > > So, I basically have 2 questions: > Will this data plot? > If it plots, how do I change the units to hPa (or mb). (using the change > units dialog didn't seem to work). > > thanks for your patience, > alan > > > Alan, I am not familiar with this dataset, will you upload a sample file to: http://motherlode.ucar.edu/repository/alias/idvupload If it does plot, we can change the unit, under Display control, you can go Edit--> Change Display Unit.
