This function creates a grid from a collection of station data. The syntax is:
numnumber of vertical levels in the output grid (default is 10)
num is given as
"-u", then the vertical levels will be a union of all the levels in the collection of station data.
coll2grdoes not yet support time slices; currently, it will only work when the collection of stations is a collection of vertical profiles.
coll2grproduces an output grid that varies in X and Z; the dimension environment used when
coll2gris invoked must also be X and Z varying. The X axis of the output grid will contain the equally spaced station profiles and will span the range of the current X dimension environment. The Z axis of the output grid will span the range of the current Z dimension environment and will have either the specified number of levels or a union of the levels. Data points outside of the range of levels will be used for interpolating to within the range if appropriate.
"-u"option will only work for data in pressure vertical coordinates. If your vertical coordinate is height,
numshould be the actual number of vertical levels in the collection of profiles.
