Re: CF 2-D latitude, longitude coordinate variables

Hi everyone,
Daryl has a file of data described by curvlinear coordinates:

yes? show data
     currently SET data sets:
    1> ./03111012_output.nc  (default)
 name     title                             I         J         K      L
 LAT      latitude                         1:60      1:45      ...     ...
 LON      longitude                        1:60      1:45      ...     ...
 BDECKT                                    1:60      1:45      ...     1:48
So he can plot this with the curlvilinear forms of the plot commands. 
See the several  topics under "curvlinear coordinates" in the Ferret Users Guide.

For instance,

yes? shade/L=1 bdeckt, lon, lat

Hi Ferreters,

I am having a difficult time getting a netCDF file that I think implements 
section 5.2 of the CF Conventions to plot with Lat/Lon coordinates


I can generate a plot, but can't figure out how to get the AXISes to be 
Lat/Lon.  Can anyone point me to an example that can explain how to do 
this in Ferret?  Stupid me is probably doing something very newbie :(
