CURVVEC creates curved vectors for 2D vector components U,V. The arrays X,Y define the coordinates for U and V. Curvature of the vectors is based on ML Built-in function, STREAM2. The length of the vectors are scaled to the vector magnitude. The color of the vectors may or may not be scaled according to the vector magnitude depending on optional input parameters.

EXAMPLE:

load wind
mu=mean(u,3); mv=mean(v,3); mx=mean(x,3); my=mean(y,3);

figure
curvvec(mx,my,mu,mv,'color',jet,'minmag',5,...
'maxmag',50,'thin',3)
set(gca,'color','k')
