Hi David,

Pretty much anything you can do (graphically) in NCL you can also do
with PyNGL. I say "pretty much" because there are some NCL scripts we
wrote to simplify the graphical process in some cases, and these may
not be available to PyNGL.

Would you be able to provide us with a dataset so we can try plotting
your data with PyNGL? I'm still new to the CellFill capability
myself, and would love to try it on some real data.
