Visualizing Meshes

As part of the EarthSim project, extensive support for visualizing triangular meshes was added to HoloViews and Datashader ; see the websites for those projects for details of how to use this functionality. Here, we will show how to use the small utilities provided in earthsim itself, which allow you to read 3DM and mesh2d files with mesh data, and we'll then visualize the resulting structures.
