Function Synopsis

q = quiver_label_giso(u,scale,xtext,ytext,type)

Help text

 USAGE: quiver_label_giso(U,scale,xtext,ytext,type)

 Puts a "scale" vector on a map from the Map Toolbox

 U = magnitude of scale vector
 scale = scale of vectors plotted
 xtext = left position of text
 ytext = y-position of text and scale vector
 type = arrow parameters (from quiver)

 PROBLEM:  First, we should note that there is no 'good' way
 to draw arrows in MATLAB, unless the map is evenly spaced in
 the x and y directions.  Unless the grid is evenly spaced, 
 the arrow length will not be correct - there's no way around
 that.  As a result, this should only be used for 'giso' 
 projection - or for evenly spaced projections.  Use at your
 own discretion.
