I meant the max() and min() methods of DataImpl. Given two
compatible Fields f1 and f2, you can compute a Field whose
values are their max's or min's with f1.max(f2) or f1.min(f2).
But as I said in my previous message, this can't quite get
you what you need. You will need to use your original idea
of simply looping through the values of f1 and f2 (if they
don't have the same sampling, you can call something like
'newf1 = f1.resample(f2.getDomainSet());' before you loop
through their samples.

No problem. VisAD is licensed under the LGPL, which means
that as long as your system uses VisAD as a library (i.e.,
as long as you haven't cut and paste code from VisAD into
your system), you're OK.
