Install natgrid add on for matplotlib

Trying to use the nearest neighbour interpolation routine through matplotlibs griddata function, I realised I needed to make use of the natgrid extension package.

Working on windows and after as simple a point and click approach as possible, I was able to find a build on this site.

Having never dealt with .whl files before I looked for some help and managed to install it very quickly using pip - something I’ve never needed to use as I’ve been able to stay within the packages directly available through the academic licensed version of canopy.

All I ended up having to type (in the directory that I saved the .whle file from earlier) was:

python -m pip install .\natgrid-0.2.1-cp27-none-win_amd64.whl
