RE: MetApps ShapefileAdapter

Is there a way to use a map projection with VisAD?   If so  there example
code?? After using the DisplayImplJ3D, I was able to get the map of the
world shape file displayed, but it does not look correct because of the lack
of a map projection.

Hi Luke,

If you are using a DisplayImplJ2D that will be much slower
than a DisplayImplJ3D for zooming and I recommend switching
to DisplayImplJ3D.

VisAD's zoom performance is determined by the performance
of Java3D, which will be quite fast with a graphics
accelerator like nVidea.

The long term advantage of VisAD over other systems is the
generality of its data model (it can handle any numerical
data) and its generality for distributed computing.

Good luck,
Bill
