>>> img ='BMNG_clouds_201109181715_areaT2.png')
>>> proj4_string = '+proj=stere +lon_0=8.00 +lat_0=50.00 +lat_ts=50.00 +ellps=WGS84'
>>> area_extent = (-3363403.31,-2291879.85,2630596.69,2203620.1)
>>> area_def = (proj4_string, area_extent)
>>> cw = ContourWriterAGG('/home/esn/data/gshhs')
>>> cw.add_coastlines(img, area_def, resolution='l', level=4)
>>> cw.add_rivers(img, area_def, level=5, outline='blue')
>>> cw.add_borders(img, area_def, outline=(255, 0, 0))
