Starting from a conformal projection (such as Mercator) of the targeted area, SeaGrid uses the Ives-Zacharias scheme to conformally map the curved perimeter to a rectangle, after which, a Poisson solver fills the interior with orthogonally distributed grid points. Control over such features as the number of grid-cells and the density of grid lines is provided by menus, dialogs, and direct graphical manipulation of objects in the program's display window. Behind the scenes, Seagrid uses a new object-oriented window manager (Presto), plus some Mex-files. None of these rely on optional MathWorks toolboxes.
