[McIDAS #ZKI-320426]: MAP.CORE entry for South Africa



Hi Tyn,

I eventually did receive your email that contained a suggested MAP.CORE
entry for South Africa:

> SAFRICA  OUTLINEFILE=  OUTLHRES OUTLHPOL \
> MERCATOR=     'LAT=-37 -15 LON=-34 -15' \
> LAMB_CONF_SC= 'LAT=-25 LON=-22 SLAT=-20 SCALE=10.0'

This definition looks OK.

You might consider if you want to include other keywords in your definition.

For instance, try the following:

<as 'mcidas'>
-- create the file ~mcidas/workdata/MAP.USER with the contents:

SAFRICA  OUTLINEFILE=  OUTLHRES OUTLHPOL \
       PROJECTION=    CONF \
       MCOLOR =       1 5 \
       MERCATOR=     'LAT=-37 -15 LON=-34 -15' \
       LAMB_CONF_SC= 'LAT=-25 LON=-22 SLAT=-20 SCALE=10.0'

With this definition in place, the map produced when you run:

MAP SAFRICA

will look like the the attached image.


Cheers,

Tom
