I am not exactly sure what you mean by normal but you can go to the Projections-->Predefined menu and make a selection, say "CONUS" which may be what you are used to. > Also I was using the 2 panes view > to compare actual vs model data of isobars at surface.

The best here may be to provide us with an example image of what you are seeing (View-->Capture-->Image, and send the image as an attachment). There are a few different scenarios that can explain what you are observing. These straight lines can be an artifact of the Barnes Objective Analysis. You can try experimenting with the "Gridded Parameters" as described here: http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/idv/docs/userguide/controls/ObjectiveAnalysis.html Best Wishes, Unidata IDV Support Ticket Details =================== Ticket ID: KMX-834734 Department: Support IDV Priority: Normal Status: Closed
