;   The initialization routine for the cgMapContinents object. 
;
; :Params:
;    mapCoord: in, required, type=object
;       A map coordinate object that will set up a map coordinate data space.
;       Required to convert lat/lon values to projected meter space. A cgMap object.
;       
; :Keywords:
;     addcmd: in, optional, type=boolean, default=0
;        If this keyword is set, the object is added to the resizeable graphics
;        window, cgWindow. Note that a map projection command must be 
;        added to the window before this command is added to be effective.
;     background: in, optional, type=string
;        The name of the background color. A polygon of this color is drawn
;        in the map space set up by the map projection before continents and
;        other items are drawn.
;     coasts: in, optional, type=boolean, default=0
;        Set this keyword if you want coasts to be drawn. This keyword is ignored if using FILENAME.
;     color: in, optional, type=string, default='opposite'
;        The name of the drawing color for the program.
;     continents: in, optional, type=boolean  
;        Set this keyword if you want continental outlines to be drawn. This will be
;        set automatically if COASTS, COUNTRIES, RIVERS, AND USA keywords are all set
;        to zero. This keyword is ignored if using FILENAME.
;     filename: in, optional, type=string
;        The name of the GSHHS file to open. If a fully qualified file name is not provided,
;        the program will look for the GSHHS file using cgFindPathTo() function. Only if
;        this fails and a file is not found, will an error be issued. This keyword applies only
;        to GSHHS data files currently. If the GSHHS keyword is set, and this keyword is undefined,
;        then the filename will be set to "gshhs_i.b", unless the HIRES keyword is set, in which
;        case it will be set to "gshhs_h.b."
;     fill: in, optional, type=boolean, default=0
;        Set this keyword to draw filled polygons rather than outlines.
;     gshhs: in, optional, type=boolean, default=0
;        Set this keyword to indicate you want to draw continents with the GSHHS data set.
;        Using the FILENAME keyword automatically sets this keyword.
;     hires: in, optional, type=boolean, default=0
;        Set this keyword to use the high-resolution data supplied with IDL for MAP_CONTINENTS.
;        This keyword is ignored if using FILENAME.
;     land_color: in, optional, type=string, default='tan8'         
;        The name of a color to be used for "land". Used when the FILL keyword is set.
;     level: in, optional, type=integer, default=2  
;        The polygon LEVEL. All polygons less than or equal to this value
;        are drawn. 1-land, 2-lakes, 3-island in lake, 4-pond in island.
;        This keyword applies only to GSHHS data sets.
;     linestyle:  in, optional, type=integer, default=0
;        Set to the type of linestyle in drawing outlines. Set solid lines by default.
;     minarea: in, optional, type=float, default=500 km^2
;        The minimum feature area. By default, 500 km^2. Polygons with areas less
;        than this are not drawn. This keyword applies only to GSHHS data sets.
;     outline: in, optional, type=boolean, default=0
;        Set this keyword to draw shorelines. Set by default if FILL=0. This keyword applies 
;        only to GSHHS data sets.
;     rivers: in, optional, type=boolean, default=0  
;        Set this keyword if you wish to draw rivers. This keyword is ignored if using FILENAME.
;     t3d: in, optional, type=boolean, default=0  
;        Set this graphics keyword if you wish to draw outlines use the T3D transformation matrix.
;        This keyword is ignored if using FILENAME.
;     thick: in, optional, type=integer, default=1
;        Set this keyword to the thickness of the lines that are drawn.
;     usa: in, optional, type=boolean, default=0  
;        Set this keyword if you wish do draw United States state boundaries. This keyword is 
;        ignored if using FILENAME.
;     water_color: in, optional, type=string, default='sky blue'
;        The name of the water color. This keyword applies only to GSHHS data sets.
;     zvalue: in, optional, type=float, default=0.0  
;        Set this keyword to the ZVALUE where the outlines should be drawn. Set to 0 by default.
;        This keyword is ignored if using FILENAME.
