Good day all!
Just started trying VisAD out a few days ago, and I'm a little stuck..
I can't figure out (from the tutorial, mailing list archives or other
doc) how to plot a 3D-trajectory (using the VisAD-Java-libraries)
time -> (x, y, z)
Ideally I would want to animate the trajectory, or show the time by
means of colors. (Also, I want to add a widget, to let the user control
the time variable.) I have tried something like the code below, but that
gives me the trajectory as (nicely colored) *points*, but I would want a
*continuous* function.. I realize that there is something fundamental
I've been missing here.. Could anyone point me in the right direction? I
found an intresting mailing list post on
http://my.unidata.ucar.edu/content/staff/russ/visad/msg01230.html , but
I couldn't figure out how to implement that..
RealTupleType rangeTupleType = new RealTupleType( xType, yType, zType );
RealType timeType = RealType.getRealType( timeString );
ScalarMap timeMap = new ScalarMap( timeType, Display.RGB );
display.addMap( timeMap );
FunctionType t_to_xyz_funcType = new FunctionType( timeType,
float timeVals = new float[ timeValues.length ];
timeVals = timeValues;
Set timeSet = new Gridded1DSet( timeType, timeVals, timeValues.length );
FlatField vals_ff_1 = new FlatField( t_to_xyz_funcType, timeSet );
