Introduction to Color Grids

A grid in ODEON is a set of regularly spaced receivers, where the acoustic parameters are displayed with colors. ODEON interpolates the grid to create a smooth map, even with a modest number of receivers. Grids can be defined automatically and quickly, and then adjusted manually.

This is only a short introduction.
