8 Grids and GRID Files
Table of Contents:


 

A McIDAS grid is a lattice of regularly spaced data points. Grids can be generated from numerical models or observational data. When you contour observational data, it is interpolated and can be stored as a grid. Grids are stored in GRID files.

This lesson describes how to:

The following commands are used in this lesson:
