Hello -

I'm wondering if this is a problem with your drivers. We had a user with similar problems with contour displays who resolved them by using different drivers. Please see the forum post Problem displaying GFS 0.5 deg data.

Granted this was a user on a Ubuntu machine, could you please make sure that the drivers on your machine are updated? For more information on graphics cards and drivers, see the System Requirements page of the McIDAS-V User's Guide.

If updating drivers doesn't help, can you please let us know the brand of your graphics chipset? For example, NVIDIA, ATI, ... . Also, when creating your display, are you using the native projection of the data, or are you changing the projection after displaying?

Thanks -
