[IDV #KUQ-901777]: Wind-Barb Cross Section vs. 3D Vector Cross Section

      As far as I know, they should be the same. 3D vector cross section is 
categorized for the dataset with u, c, and w. But the vertical cross section 
can only display north, south, east, and west direction. So, the w component 
can not be displayed here.
