No. The printim code doesn't know anything about the grid structure or
the dimension environment -- it only knows about what's in the
graphics metafile. The geolocaiton information is not available at
that point.

This technique of substituting the .tif image file created with 'gxout
kml' with another image created with printim is a hack -- an
unofficial alternative if you want something besides a pixelated image
of your data values.

By the way, I have noticed that Google Earth's smoothing algorithm can
make the GrADS images look really awful -- anyone know how to turn off
that feature?
