This branch introduces several new functions for working with Tecplot data. The
interpolate_zone_to_geometry function assists in seamlessly creating a new, user-defined geometry (spherical shells, lines, boxes, and arbitrary trajectories) and interpolating data onto it. The
write_zone function complements Tecplot's existing functions for writing data by adding a simpler
CSV format suitable for working easily with Pandas, and an
HDF5 format. The
HDF5 format is particularly useful since it stores large datasets at a comparable size to Tecplot's native
PLT format while being compatible with a wider range of scientific software. Examples are provided for using these functions in isolation or together as elements of one workflow.
