Re: TRIGRID co-linearity problem


I went ahead and tried doing what you recommended, using the randomu or
randomn functions to add random parts to my latitude and longitude
arrays. But I am still getting a co-linear error from trigrid. Are you
somehow determining specifically which x (longitude) and y (latitude)
points are co-linear and then adding the random perturbations to these
points only?
