Re: newbie question - mutiple scales

Hi John,

Yes, it is possible.  There's a nice example with display2
in visad/paoloa/GoesCollaboration.java, between lines 532
and 556.  The setScaleEnable(true) call on GraphicsModeControl
enables scales for all RealTypes mapped to XAxis, YAxis and
ZAxis.  In display2, the RealTypes temp, mixr, ozone and
pressure are all mapped to XAxis.  The setScaleColor() method
of ScalarMap is used to set the color of each scale.

Cheers,
Bill
p.s., GoesCollaboration calls some Fortran native code so only
runs on Sparc Solaris.
