Symbol plotting in Magics is the plotting of different types of symbols at selected locations.
A symbol in this context is a number (the value at the location), a text string (given by the user) or a Magics marker.
The Magics marker set contains classic markers such as dot, cross, square but also weather or clouds symbols.
An advanced mode has beed added.
Using advanced mode means that the colour and height of the plotted symbols are determined automatically according to configurable rules.
