Core displays

Needs review by Mike Dixon.

Hi Alison
You are right - this is pretty out of date.
I think perhaps we should take a thorough look at the software pages.
We should probably have a summary page that links into GitHub.

Developing high-quality data visualization tools is one of the most time-consuming aspects of radar software.

It is anticipated that many researchers will use high-level tools such as Matlab and Python for data visualization. However, it is considered necessary that the core should provide a certain level of display functionality.

The following displays will form part of the core suite.
