Grid2, map2 files available back to July 2006

As a general update, it's been a few years since the major revisions to our grid- and map-level processing software were complete. These revisions date back to RST 4.0 (as of this writing, RST is at version 4.3.1) with the new files being named grid2 and map2 so that previous files could be maintained for data reproducibility. A number of other data issues were being sorted out and processed, including the expansion of the VT data storage systems, that delayed a mass processing of the new files. However with a break in some activities, grid2 and map2 files have now been generated back to the start of the modern dmap file format on July 1, 2006.

As always, for a listing of what files we have for certain dates please visit our Data Inventory(external link) page.
