Hi Mark,
     I got the data you uploaded.  It is what I am expected.
     After loading the data, go to the Field Selector tab, in the Fields panel, 
you need to expand the Track tree, and select one of the variable and also 
select Track Colored By Parameter in the Displays panel, when you create the 
display, you should see the 3D display in the map view window.
