Cubed Sphere inspired this file.
This is a nice work. Is it possible to add a tiltle to the plot. Please let me know.
A nice utility. However, there are few bugs with the plot2dmap options. The field name is accidentally called plot2Dmap after the "lower" function is used, and hence a field value other than false for plot2dmap can never be implemented.
Bug corrected (occurs for large samplestep)
Few minor memory enhancement
better use of memory,
correct BUG for color-indexing,
add 'NColors' property,
indexing color is now default option,
small gaps between cube-faces are now removed
Now can plot NEO maps http://neo.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/Search.html
Correct bug of overflow colormap when process original png file
Read tiff/jpg maps
