Perhaps I am misunderstanding the "vector field renderer" and "VectFieldCalc" plugins, but I have no idea how to make a vector field of arrows, with directions and magnitude. I have the data loaded currently with two seperate .vrt layers, and have tried many other ways. The data originally came from two netcdf files. It would be really nice if I could make the layer simply from those two rasters.
OK. After who knows how long, I somewhat got it. I had to write a python program to create a .csv file with Latitude, Longitude, u, and v. After I imported my .csv, I was able to use the vector plugins.
