Grid detail/size

Is there a way to get more detail in a grid by making the grids smaller? What I'm looking for is more wind strength and direction detail in the grids. Cheers

There is an object I added to visualize interpolated winds: wind field.
It shows a grid of wind vectors with a certain resolution.
Not very well integrated in the UI at this time.

Go to the "Wind Interpolation" group.
- Set wind field resolution (for example 0.25 deg).
- Adjust zoom to include the desired area.
- Click [Add wind field] button.

This will add a wind field covering the current desktop area.

To hide or exclude a wind field, go to the
"Marks, Circles, Wind fields" group

Hi Omar, Happy New Year

Got the same problem and follow your instructions. I think it suits well the purpose.

"Tiny detail": Keep pressing "add wind field" it crowds the whole desktop :oops:

How do we undo? :)

Working currently on the WR (still a challenge to make it work!).
Bons ventos (GW)

The wind fields are added as objects on the map and are listed under Tracks -> Marks, circles, Wind fields. You can deleted them there.
(I had the same problem ;-))

Kind regards,
