4.1.3 Cross Sections of Gridded Data
Cross sections of data can be useful to show the variation of a field along a transect. In the IDV, a cross section display consists of a selector line and display in the main window, and a 2D display of the cross section in the control window.
  1. First, we'll create a vertical cross section of contours of wind speed and compare it to the isosurface made in the previous exercise.
  2. You can also create cross sections of 2D parameters that will show their variation along a transect. In this step, you will load in a plan view of sea level pressure and then a data transect of that field.
