Contour

DESCRIPTION

Generates contour lines for a 2D dataset or for slices of a 3D dataset. For 3D datasets, slice directions are under user control. The number of contour lines and their values have widget controls. For inputs with several data variables (nDataVar > 1), alternate channels can be contoured using the Channel slider.

Contour lines are colored by an input colormap based on data values. If no colormap is available, then a fixed spectral map is created within the module.

Linear line segments are computed between interpolation points on cell edges. No smoothing is applied.
