DKRZ PyNGL example map with orthographic projectionΒΆ

Example:

import Ngl

#-- open workstation
wks = Ngl.open_wks("png","plot_map_orthographic")

#-- resource settings
mpres = Ngl.Resources()                #-- resource object

mpres.vpWidthF = 0.8                   #-- width of plot
mpres.vpHeightF = 0.8                  #-- height of plot

mpres.mpFillOn = True                  #-- map fill on
mpres.mpOceanFillColor = "Transparent" #-- default: dark blue
mpres.mpLandFillColor = "Gray90"       #-- default: dark red
mpres.mpInlandWaterFillColor = "Transparent" #-- default: white

mpres.mpProjection = "Orthographic"    #-- projection type
mpres.tiMainString = "Orthographic projection"  #-- title

#-- create the plot
map = Ngl.map(wks,mpres)

Ngl.end()
