    **Changed functions:**
    
    `plotmap`
    
    * Has been rewritten in large parts. It should work now not just for geographical and rotated model coordinates, by for most structured grids, if additional geographic lat/lon data are provided for the model grid.
    * An additional small model area can no longer be plotted. For this plot a rectangle of the small model area over the plot or use the old version `plotmap.old`
    
    *New Options*
    
    * units - default=NULL (overwrites the units from the netCDF file)
    * longname - default=NULL (overwrites the longname from the netCDF file)
    * add.offset - default=0
    * scale.factor - default=1
    * geo.coordinate.names - default=c("lon,"lat") 2D fields of the geographical longitude and latitude at the model grid points
    
    *Removed Options*
    
    * file.small
    * sponge.small
    * lsm.file.small
    
    **New functions:**
    
    `windvec`
    
    * plots wind vectors over a given plot
    
    `geo2mod`
    
    * converts geographical coordinates to model coordinates
    
    `get.ethz.palette`
    
    * gets a palette from the web page https://wiki.c2sm.ethz.ch/Data/VisNCLCosmoLibraryColorTables
    
    `get.ncar.palette`
    
    * gets a palette from the web page http://www.ncl.ucar.edu/Document/Graphics/color_table_gallery.shtml
    
    **Depecreated functions:**
    
    The old version of the function `plotmap` is now called `plotmap.old`. This function will stay as is and will not be further developped.
