Could you suggest me a way to do it?

The easiest thing would be too look through the
ucar.unidata.idv.control.DataTransectControl and work your
way back. But for a quick summary the IDV has:

3 Data References with RealTuples (XYZ) in them for the
selector points (two end points, one mid point).
1 Data Reference with a Gridded2DSet on a 1D manifold (for
the line)
ActionImpls that listen for changes when the selector points are
directly manipulated and update the postions of the line
and other points.

A listener on the line so that when it changes:
 - A sampling set of points along the line is generated
 - the data field is resamples along that line.

You could reinvent this all, or just use the pieces of the
IDV library that we've already developed.
