Appendix F
Viewing your data with KAPPA

 F.1 Setting up xwindows
 F.2 Format axes
 F.3 Plotting a two-dimensional image
 F.4 Plotting spectra
 F.5 Plotting a grid of spectra
 F.6 Plotting two images side by side
 F.7 Selecting a different graphics device

This appendix offers a few examples of creating different types of plots using Kappa. The applications highlighted here are display and contour for maps, and linplot and clinplot for spectra (See the Kappa manual for more details).

The plotting attributes for each of these applications is controlled in the same way. For full details of all the formatting options as well as setting up your graphics device, see the ‘Plotting Styles and Attributes’ section in the Kappa manual.

Tip:
You can abbreviate any of the command-line options so long as the application can distinguish it from the other options. For example, mode=histogram can be abbreviated all the way to mode=h.
