PLOT_SPHERICAL

PLOT_SPHERICAL

Name


    PLOT_SPHERICAL

Purpose


    This function will create a three-dimensional quadilateral-faceted
    plot of spherical coordinate data. The data provided must
    represent magnitudes defined at a regularly-spaced set of declination
    and azimuth angles.

Category


    General.

Calling Sequence


    result = PLOT_SPHERICAL( declination, $
                            azimuth, $
                            magnitude, $
                            DEGREES=inDegrees, $
                            NO_AXES=noAxes )

Inputs


    declination
      An array of declination angles at which the magnitudes are defined.
    azimuth
      An array of azimuth angles at which the magntiudes are defined.
    magnitude
      An array of data values at the specified azimuth and zenith angles.
    NOTE: The order of the data contained in the arrays described above must must
          be consistent (a magnitude at a declination and a azimuth must all occupy
          the same array position). The relative ordering of the data can be
          arbitrary as the function will sort the data for proper plotting.

Keyword Parameters


    DEGREES
      Set this keyword to interpret the provided declination and azimuth angles
      in degrees. If this keyword is omitted, the angles are assumed to be
      specified in radians.
    NO_AXES
      Set this keyword to omit drawing axes for the produced plot.
  :ERROR CHECKING:
    None.

Side Effects


    None.
