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.
