VisAD Visualization Using Java2D or Java3D

We have added a Java2D display capability to VisAD.  Now
displays can be generated using either Java3D or Java2D.
For most applications, the only difference is whether the
display is constructed as DisplayImplJ3D or DisplayImplJ2D.
The Java2D dislays are truly 2-D (i.e., we leave the issue
of 3-D software rendering to Java3D implementations) so no
types can be mapped to ZAxis or Latitude in a Java2D
display.
 
Complete source code, the VisAD Java Class Library Developers
Guide and several example applications are freely available at:
