[IDV #SRY-572364]: 3D (or 2D) plots of dropsonde data

Hi Mark,
     When you loaded the data in the IDV, if you selected the data source type 
as "upsonde/dropsonde files", you should have the option in the field selector 
like: Track, Skew-T and Sonde Start Locations. I am not sure if this is what 
you mean 2D/3D plot. Can you upload a dataset here:
