Creates and draws a cylindrical equidistant map.
load "$NCARG_ROOT/lib/ncarg/nclscripts/csm/gsn_code.ncl" load "$NCARG_ROOT/lib/ncarg/nclscripts/csm/gsn_csm.ncl" function gsn_csm_map_ce ( wks  : graphic, res  : logical ) return_val  : graphic
A variable containing an optional list of plot resources, attached as attributes. Set to True if you want the attached attributes to be applied, and False if you either don't have any resources to set, or you don't want the resources applied.
A scalar id of the map plot created is returned. This is useful if you want to use setvalues to change some plot options after this function has been called.
This function creates and draws a cylindrical equidistant map plot on the given workstation. The map will be centered at longitude 0 unless you set the resource mpCenterLonF to the desired center longitude.
Important note: in NCL version 6.4.0, the mpDataBaseVersion resource was updated from having a default of "LowRes" to having a default value of "Dynamic". The "LowRes" database will still be the default, unless either of the boundary-set resources mpFillBoundarySets or mpOutlineBoundarySets are set to anything other than "Geophysical", in which case the "MediumRes" database will be used. See the map outlines page for example scripts.
For the map, the following will happen automatically:
- the continents will be colored gray
- the continental outlines will be turned off
- the latitude/longitude locations will be labeled
- the tickmarks will point outward
To maximize the area that the plot is drawn in, set the special resource gsnMaximize to True.
