WG: How get range info from certain objects?

You can get the ranges of your GriddedSet via its
computerRanges(RealType[] reals). This method is defined in Data so
every visad data objects contains it. It returns a double[][] whose
first index stands for the corresponding RealType in your reals array
and whose second index marks the min and max values.

Another way would be to get the ranges directly from your ScalarMap:

double[] range = scalarMap.getRange();
scalarMap.setRange(range[1], range[0]);

Hope that helps, Mathias
