Spatial Bin Index

Post by terryphi » Mon May 14, 2018 10:08 pm

Hello,

In thedocumentation on the .precpoints file, there is mention of a "spatial bin index" indicated by the iSpatial field.

Can anyone provide a description as to what this "spatial bin index" is, and where I can more information of "spatial bins" and how they are used?

There is no spatial bin index in the .precpoints file (which stores the point-wise precursors).

There is a spatial bin index in the .prec file that stores the mesh-based precursor distributions.

The spatial bin index refers to a bin in the cartesian mesh that is used to store the mesh-based precursors.
