The many options in EPIMAP are often not needed, and a bit cumbersome for routine use, so the wrapper program, MAP, will automatically calculate the input parameters and start EPIMAP. To run the program type
where file-name can be an s-file or a compact file. If no file name is given, MAP will ask for a file name. Program MAP gets its few input parameters from SEISAN.DEF using most of the same parameters as used with the EEV option map. The parameters used are:
EPIMAP_STATIONS : plot stations from STATION0.HYP . Options are: blank: no stations plotted, a: all stations with station coded plotted, x: all stations without station code plotted. NOTE: Option s (plot some stations) cannot be used.
EPIMAP_MAP_FILE : name of map file, if blank use WORLD
EPIMAP_PROJECTION : projection number, if 0, use Mercator = 3
The program will determine the area of the map from the data file and add 0.5 degree in all directions. The latitude-longitude grid will have 5 lines for both latitude and longitude, however the smallest spacing is one degree. The commands used for the plot are given in map.inp. the file can be edited to change parameters and the plot remade with command epimap map.inp.
