This is a simple script that takes in earth coordinate angle measures and makes a 'rose' plot.

Hey all -- I wrote another more appropriately named (earth_rose) script for ALL geo scientists!


This is similar to wind_rose, but I found that that function did way more than I needed it to.

This function:
1. takes in angle measurements in earth coordinates (0 degrees is N, 90 degrees is E, 180 degrees is South, 270 deg is West)
2. converts those angles into mathematical coordinates
3. creates a 'rose' plot (polar histogram)
4. Changes the axis names to N,S,E,W
