MB-System 5.1.1 update in Fink

As Kurt points out in his lastest blog post, Fink now supports the latest beta version of MB-System (ver. 5.1.1). The OpenGL features now work, so not only can you view and manipulate 3D grids, but you can edit 3D swath data as well. Check out Kurt's blog for some sample grids to download and play with. The controls take some getting used, but once you get the hang of it, it is quite easy. If you want to use the 3D editor, you will need a grid as well as the associated swath files. I cannot wait to create some grids of my own and test out the editor after the New Year's. In the meantime, here is what the 3D grid viewer (mbgrdviz) looks like with one of Kurt's grids loaded and a profile taken:
