This is caused by a combination of two things: o the default PROJECTION= keyword in MAP.CORE I sent out is set to CONF o UACROSS (and XSECT and XSECTG) implicitly assume that the map to be drawn will be in MERCator projection. The subroutine that UACROSS calls, and the different subroutine that XSECT and XSECTG call to plot maps needed updating to always specify MERCator projections instead of assuming that the default projection would be MERCator The bottom line is that the error you are seeing is a result of the update of the MAP system. I updated the subroutine that XSECT and XSECTG call (mapurx.for) several weeks ago. I just updated the map routine that UACROSS calls a couple of minutes ago (drawmap.for) because of your note. I will include both of thes in the addendum I will be putting out (hopefully _very_ soon). In the mean time, you have two options that you can pursue: o edit ~mcidas/data/MAP.CORE and change PROJECTION=CONF to PROJECTION=MERC o update the offending subroutines and rebuild UACROSS (and XSECT and XSECTG) For option #2, please do the following: <login as 'mcidas'> cd mcidas7.7/src mv drawmap.for drawmap.for.770 mv mapurx.for mapurx.for.770 ftp ftp.unidata.ucar.edu <user> anonymous <pass> your_full_email_address cd pub/mcidas/src get drawmap.for get mapurx.for quit make uacross.k xsect.k xsectg.k cd ~/bin rm uacross.k xsect.k xsectg.k cd ~/mcidas7.7/src ln uacross.k xsect.k xsectg.k ~/bin Tom
