Specify a full plot domain can be difficult.  Therefore, a region file can be created to alias plot domain specifications.  This default region file is wxp.reg.  New regions can be added to this file.  Here is an example line from the file:

   us    Contiguous_US       1  39,-97,2.3

The alias is listed first, followed by a long name (all spaces must be underscores), followed by a menu toggle and finally the plot domain specification.  The menu toggle specifies whether the region is to appear in the region menu (1=yes, 0=no).  The long name is then used in the menu listing.  

This alias can now be specified as:

   -pd=us or -re=us

There are preset regions which can be modified by editing the wxp.reg file.
