General:  The MDL resources do not offer a rigorous study of gridding, so serious students who want to know more about the subject should consult the literature and the various OceanTeacher articles cited in the exercises below.  The intent here is to provide the big picture of what grids are, how they are made and managed, and how they are used with other marine data.  These basic "mechanics" are often much more valuable to new data managers than the complexities of various gridding algorithms and their applications.

A serious data import problem has been discovered in Saga, concerning NetCDF grids.  For now, use IDV or ncBrowse to visualize NetCDF grids.  I'll let you know when Saga is fixed, and how to get the new version.
