SIGMA.TXT

(Compiled by TC)

Description

SIGMA.TXT is made by densify and is located in the SHAPEFILES/ directory. This file is essentially a copy of the most recently made ICQ shape file SHAPE.TXT, with a fourth column of sigma values.

First line is Q (resolution). This gives the number of nodes for i and j. Multiply it by 6 coordinate vector spaces to fill out the entire region. Note: Q*Q*6 is the total number of nodes, and line entries in this file. A Q of 512 is the largest that we represent. It contains 1.6 million vertices and 56 MB uncompressed.

Second line and following: The location of a vertex in i, j, k space (Cartesian coordinates), and the sigma value.
