That does appear to work as I would expect for Reals, so this does give
Now if I could just figure out if I can associate an error with each of
my FlatField values without having to resort to a FieldImpl with a range

Hi Doug --
In the Data Tutorial <http://www.ssec.wisc.edu/~tomw/visadtutor/visaddata.html>
there is a small section on Error Estimates (EE). My understanding is
that you can associate
an EE with any Real, and when you combine some Reals together to make
a new Real, it will contain as estimate of the errors, based on the EE
in the original Reals and the math operations you've done to combine
From the tutorial:
a = new Real(10.,1.);
b = new Real(255.,10.);
c = (Real) a.add(b, Data.NEAREST_NEIGHBOR, Data.INDEPENDENT);
System.out.println("sum = "+c);
System.out.println("error of sum is="+c.getError().getErrorValue());
When you run this example, you get:
sum = 265.0
error of sum is=10.04987562112089
The key, obviously, is to have an idea of the variance of your data....
Hope that helped...a little....

I'm trying to figure out how to use ErrorEstimate-s. I have simple time
series data as FlatField-s (time -> value) to do some math on and I'd
like to propagate some errors. The reality is that I have an array of
values and an array (of the same size) of variances.
Do I need to construct an ErrorEstimate to pass to setRangeErrors? If
so, how? I don't see a constructor that makes sense. I simply want to
say, "here are the variances for each of my values."
