[ferret_users] Color filling contours in Plate Caree projection - problem

Hi Felow Ferret Users, 

I would appreciate a pointer to resolve my problem. I need to make frames for Google Earth animation, which requires Simple Cylindrical projection a.k.a. Plate Caree. 

I developed Ferret script, that can do waterer I want for Polar Stereographic projection (I draw polar areas with ice coverage). It includes 

- data reading
- plotting land contours and map mesh  
- plotting color-filled contours with custom palette
- overplotting isocontours on the top of this map

The very same script with a single line change (projection change) refuses to plot the color-filled contours, while all other operations are performed OK, including map, mesh, and overpotting of isocontours in the end. The line I am changing is 

go mp_stereographic_north -42.5

instead I use 

go mp_plate_carree -42.5 

and subsequently comment out 

go mp_aspect 

which (commenting out or leaving in the scripts of this second comand) results in predicable response and does not affect the main problem)

Any similar experiences and/or ways to resolve the problem?

Also, working scripts with Plate Caree utilization for color contouring in polar regions could be of great help. I am not stick to my script, I easily can use another one that would make Simple Cylindrical operational.

Great thanks to everyone responding,
Sergei Maurits
