Yes, there are many. Here is one: IDL> imageroi=rebin(imagemask eq 0,200,84,nz) assuming the full dimensions are 200x84xnz. Once IDL 5.5 comes out, you should also be able to use a single vector of dimensions: rebin(imagemask eq 0, [size(imagemask,/DIMENSIONS),nz]) and so on. (Craig, they have committed to adding this overlooked feature). > > b. ;blow-up image X 9 For Screen Display > I don't use the EXPAND function because I don't want to interpolate > the data. Almost everyone (except RSI, apparently) has a nice image viewer routine which does this for you, based on your window size. I wrote my own myself long ago, but you'd be better off starting with one of theirs. Hint: they often start with "im" or "tv", or and in "disp". Hint2: rebin() is again your friend, with SAMPLE=1 set. > > 3. PLOT > I have a couple of plots I want on the same Y Scale, the larger of > the two > data sets.
