Create tic labels for labeling astronomical images.


Used to display images with right ascension or declination
axes. This routine creates labels for already determined tic
marks (every other tic mark by default)

Calling Sequence

TICLABELS, minval, numtics, incr, ticlabs, [ RA = ,DELTA = ]


minval - minimum value for labels (degrees)
numtics - number of tic marks
incr - increment in minutes for labels


ticlabs - array of charater string labels

Optional Input Keywords

/RA - if this keyword is set then the grid axis is assumed to be
a Right Ascension. Otherwise a declination axis is assumed
DELTA - Scalar specifying spacing of labels. The default is
DELTA = 2 which means that a label is made for every other tic
mark. Set DELTA=1 to create a label for every tic mark.
      FONT - scalar font graphics keyword (-1,0 or 1) for text

Procedures Used



Invalid for wide field (> 2 degree) images since it assumes that a
fixed interval in Y (or X) corresponds to a fixed interval in Dec
(or RA)
