Re: Problems with precision & ScalarMap

Hi Timo-

By default, the DefaultSet for the range values in a FlatField is a
FloatSet.  You can change the default set in 1 of two ways:

1) use the setDefaultSet() method in RealType:

    height = new RealType("height", SI.meter);
    height.setDefaultSet(new DoubleSet(height));


2) use the rangeset parameter in the FlatField constructor:

    h_vals_ff = new FlatField( func_t_h, time_set, (CoordinateSystem[])
null, new Set[] { new DoubleSet(height) }, (Unit[]) null );

That will fix your rounding error.

However, the problem you are seeing with the long pause seems to be
related to computing the tick marks in the AxisScale.  I'm looking into
this and will post a fix when I have one.
