MAKE-MAP and MEDMAP: two programs for plotting maps of the Mediterranean Sea
Two FORTRAN programs MAKE_MAP and MEDMAP are described which, when used together, will plot maps of all or any portion of the Mediterranean Sea. Examples are given which show the high degree of detail provided by the 2' resolution of the database. A description of how the maps are created in the MAKE_MAP program by means of intermediate landmass matrices is given, and applications of these landmass matrices are mentioned. A flow chart of the main stages of this program is given. The landmass matrix is read by MEDMAP which uses an interpolating contour routine to plot the coastline; a flow chart of the program is given. FORTRAN listings for MAKE_MAP and MEDMAP are also included.
