To make each tributary a different solid color, a slightly
different approach is best. For each of the the three Gridded2DSets
in Rivers.java, make it the domain Set of a FlatField of MathType:

  ((RealType.Latitude, RealType.Longitude) -> (r, g, b))

The for each FlatField create an array values[3][n_samples]
repeating the appropriate values for red, green and blue.
Then construct a FieldImpl with MathType:

  (index -> ((RealType.Latitude, RealType.Longitude) -> (r, g, b))

and Integer1DSet(3) for domain Set, and set the three FlatFields
as values via FieldImpl.setSample(i, flat_field_i).

If you want a set of lines in 3-D, replace
(RealType.Latitude, RealType.Longitude) with a 3-D Type and
replace the Gridded2DSets with Gridded3DSets with manifold
dimension = 1.

Good luck,
Bill
