There is a need here to show "fault planes" and geological formation
boundaries in 3D, inside the earth. They are irregularly curved
surfaces, or in VisAD terms, a 2D manifold in 3D space. Can VisAD /
IDV do this, and if so what NetCDF data format is used? The data
available to use would be a collection of (lat,lon,altitude) triplets,
irregularly spaced, not on a grid.
there is an effort in CF to define a format for unstructured grids in
this efffort is still in process, but we will (eventually) read the
format that is defined into the common data model.
