GUI for choosing time limits of oceanographic transects
Updated 12 Mar 2009

View License

Allows user to employ graphical controls to choose start and end points of oceanographic transects.

Useful for ADCP, echosounder and towed-body transects.

A zoomable map display shows the entire ship track and the currently-selected transect. The user selects transects using either "dial"-style controls or conventional pushbuttons. Dial-style controls will not work in Matlab releases prior to R2008a, so set DIAL constant to zero to prevent use of dial-style controls.

Install by unzipping .zip file and adding the "choose_transect_limits" and "dial" directories to your Matlab path (do NOT add the dial/@dial directory to your path).
