Missing data is indicated by NaNs in VisAD.  If you are
reading from a netCDF file, there are conventions for
indicating missing data using attributes.  See:

http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/netcdf/docs/netcdf/Attribute-Conventions.html#Attribute-Conventions

if you have your own adapter, it will need to convert
from the file values to NaN's in the VisAD Data object.

For display, you can use the GraphicModeControl or
a ConstantMap to set missing values transparent.
