Re: [idvusers] Soundings from global grib file

Yes, I think the ability to specify a single(/series of) point(s) would
be a nice feature to have.  I have frequent reason to probe archived GFS
and ECMWF global analysis fields somewhat randomly, comparing derived
soundings from them to real soundings, satellite soundings, and other

I'll spend some time with Tom and Brendon's advice and see if I can't
make it work for the current project.

Once you have the probe, you can just enter in values for Lat/Lon in the

display which appears in the display tab in the dashboard, and the probe

will move to the point of your choosing.

Feature request/idea: The field selector Tom referenced allows for a 
subset region of points, but does not allow for a single data point or a

series/list of coordinates.  This would probably resolve Kevin's issue 
and make it easier if one had many specific points to probe.
