; DKRZ NCL example: viewport_panels.ncl
;
; Description: Create a panel 3x3 using vp-resources instead of
;   gsn_panel function:
;
;     1. arrange plots 3 rows by 2 columns
;     2. use different map projections
;     3. zoom into map
;     4. use different plot sizes
;     5. use vp-resources to create the panel
