When I asked you how many grid box you need, I was thinking about a few number
of 2D boxes, and
you can create these boxes with draw control and then call the formula Maps >
Subset field from map to get
all the points inside the box and do calculation. The IDV can subset the field
with the polygons of maps boundary, But
only in the 2D dimensions.
Since your plan will require boxes in 3D dimensions and subset in 3D
dimensions, I will suggest to do it outside the
IDV and create a CF compliant netCDF file and then load it back to the IDV,
this will be the most efficient way.
