#  File:
#    TRANS_shapefile.py
#
#  Synopsis:
#    Illustrates how to use shapefiles

#
#  Description:
#    This example shows how to use shapefiles.
#
#  Effects illustrated:
#    o  Reading netCDF data
#    o  Drawing contours on a map
#    o  Using manual levels
#    o  Reading shapefile content
#    o  Drawing shapefile polylines
#
#  Output:
#    A single visualization is produced.
