Dear All,

Can mapFields be used to map the results from a fine mesh to coarse mesh? For instance, from 5 million mesh to 1 million mesh? Thank you very much!

of course you can. just define Source & Target directories correctly.
have a look at the section 2.1.5 Increasing the mesh resolution of the user guide
“If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange these apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.”
