This function can be used to find the mean value for all the cells found within the defined region of a grid (all cell values are added together and then divided by the total number of cells that make the region), as shown in the image below:


val = ds_grid_get_mean(grid, 0, 0, 5, 5);

The above code will set the variable "val" to the mean value contained within the given region of the ds_grid indexed in the variable "grid".
