Defining a limited area domain - Lampos

The LAMPOS tool was developed at the Met Office and is used in positioning and defining a limited area domain. The user draws the limited area on a map, and the program calculates the position of the corners and the rotated pole.

The current version is 4.2A and this deals with both the old and new dynamics.

The LAMPOS tool is also available on PUMA: simply type lampos.


Create a file called 'lampos' and add the following,

#! /bin/sh
exec /usr/bin/wish -f /home/umui/lamposvn4.2/lampos.tcl

Make the script executable and put it in a directory on PUMA where it can be found in your PATH.

Then simply type lampos to run the tool.
