Notes on sea ice map rotation

In generating magnified maps, an automatic rotation is performed. If you are in the northern hemisphere, and click on a point in the left hand third of the grid, the magnified image will be rotated 90 degrees counter-clockwise (the dateline will run up and down). In the right hand third of the grid, the rotation is 90 degrees clockwise (the Scandanavian coast will run left-right). 
If you have an addition or correction, comment or suggestion, please write
