We were just trying some ESP plots for simple molecules, and found for CH2Cl2 (running MOPAC PM3) that the Mapped properties defaults to almost 13000 (as opposed to -0.0379 for the min.) This makes the entire plot red. Manually setting the min to 0.05 or so gives a reasonable looking ESP plot. Defaults work well for other chloromethanes in the sequence, so ?

This appears to be an issue with interpolation of the electron density at a few points. The problem goes away when using a finer mesh (increasing number of grid points in the Preferences : Isosurfaces).

ESP plots of CH2Cl2 (running NWChem) at the B3LYP/6-31G* level are not parsed correctly in WebMO 17 or 18 (see job 427990 on demo server). The same calculation with G09 or GAMESS appears correct. The NWC problem is not ameliorated by changing the grid points.
