[IDV #GAO-999122]: Shape File Display

> Good morning Unidata!
> Brian Etherton here (formerly of UserComm) with a need for assistance.
> I have a somewhat unorthodox shape file I am trying to use in IDV.  It is
> unorthodox in that the lat/lons are? reversed!  Thus, my shapes are all in
> Antarctica, not the US.
> Plan A is some knob on IDV to let it know they are reversed.
> Plan B is a shape file 'reverser' for the lats and lons.
> Let me know your thoughts on this!

    I think plan B is easier, :). I would not mind to add some logics on the 
IDV side, but it is not clear to me
if those lat/lon can be easily detected by checking the number.
