Bill,

     That worked.  Sort of.  The plot (attached) now looks dirty and it
*does* take a (really) long time to render.

     I see from the tutorial that "By disabling texture mapping we make the
polygons have interpolated colors instead of textures. This removes the
tesselated [sic] texture, like it was seen in the previous examples, and
causes the smoother appearance."  However, I seem to be getting shading
rather than interpolation.

     Thanks,

        -Ken

Hi Ken,

The mismatch of Z level and color is because the default
is to enable texture mapping, over a surface that is
sub-sampled from the actual data (tis greatly improves
rendering speed for large data). You can disable texture
mapping with:

  GraphicsModeControl mode = display.getGraphicsModeControl();
  mode.setTextureEnable(false);

Good luck,
Bill
