I installed and ran your package and find it very nice.
It wouldn't be difficult to replace your:

  "new DisplayImplJ2D("VisAD2D display");"

with:

  "new DisplayImplJ3D("VisAD2D display", new TwoDDisplayRendererJ3D());"

and to create "J3D" declarations parallel to all your
"J2D" decalrations. The ease with which you can switch
between the Java2D and Java3D APIs is a sign of VisAD's
object-oriented design.

The VisAD home page is at:

  http://www.ssec.wisc.edu/~billh/visad.html

Please correct this in your on-line 00Readme.txt file,
so your users will know where to find information
about VisAD.

Cheers,
