This resource is used to set the output plot type. This is critical for contour and vector plots where there several choices for plot type. Here is a list of plot types:


  • cf -- color fill contours
  • ln -- line contours
  • dln -- dashed line contours
  • ndln -- negative dash line contours
  • lcf -- both line and color fill contours
  • gvalue -- plot gridpoint values


  • vect -- vectors/arrows
  • strm -- streamlines
  • barb -- wind barbs
  • none -- no output plot
