cross section on mapped display vs. in layer display

Post by joleenf »

Hi,

This might be a case where I am very confused and there is nothing wrong, but I displayed an AIRS cross section and looked at it in the display (in the data projection) and in the layer settings. They do not look the same, why? In particular, look at the layer at about 50 km, it appears to be about 270 K in the layer control and around 280 K in the mapped display.

Oh wow...I just decided to try and draw a transect, and when I added the transect, the cross section in the display window suddenly matches the layer window. ???

I am very confused.

When I get the transect displayed, it looks more like the original mapped cross section display. These are all using the same color table with the same endpoints.

Thanks,

According to a vertical Profile display, it looks like the transect and first cross section on the mapped display is correct...

User error found..I displayed the first cross section as "all levels" and the rest were more selective.
Sorry about the confusion.
