  The purpose of this function is to calculate a position in a graphics window with
  a specified aspect ratio (ysize/xsize).




    aspect_ratio: in, required, type=float
        The requested aspect ratio. Be careful to specify this as a float.


    align: in, optional, type=string, default='center'
        Normally, the output position is centered in the intial input position. This
        keyword can alter the placement of the final position with respect to the initial
        position. Allowed values are "top", "right", "bottom", "left", and "center".
    aspect: in, optional, type=array
        This keyword provides an alternative way of specifying the `aspect_rato` value. Pass
        this keyword any 2D array, and the aspect ratio will be calculated to match the 2D array.
    position: in, optional, type=array
        Use this keyword to specify a four-element normalized starting position for calculating
        the final position in the graphics window. By default, the staring position is given
        by [0.0, 0.0, 1.0, 1.0] (the entire window). If the `Single_Plot` keyword is set, the
        default position is given by [0.125, 0.125, 0.9, 0.9].
    single_plot: in, optional, type=boolean, default=0
        Set this keyword to change the default starting `Position` to [0.125, 0.125, 0.9, 0.9].
    waspect: in, optional, type=float
        Set this keyword to the window aspect ratio. If not used, the window aspect is calculated from
        the current graphics window as Float(!D.Y_VSize) / !D.X_VSize.


    Here is how to use this program to display two differently sized images aligned at their tops::
        img1 = cgDemoData(7)
        img2 = congrid(img1, 360, 180)
        cgDisplay, 900, 450
        pos = cgLayout([2,1], OYMargin=[4, 11], OXMargin=[5, 8], XGap=6)
        pos1 = pos[*,0]
        img1pos = cgAspect(Position=pos1, Aspect=img1, Align='top')
        cgImage, img1, CTIndex=3, /AXES, POSITION=img1pos, OPOSITION=op
        cgColorbar, CTIndex=3, /Fit
        pos2 = pos[*,1]
        img2pos = cgAspect(Position=pos2, Aspect=img2, Align='top')
        cgImage, img2, /AXES, POSITION=img2pos, CTIndex=2, /NoErase
        cgColorbar, CTIndex=2, /Fit
