#' @title Convert a gridded data set with more than one member to a S4 class. 
#' 
#' @description Convert a gridded data set with more than one ensemble member to the MrEnsemble
#'  class. MrEnsemble is a S4 class derived from the MrGrid. The data set must have the elements Variable, 
#'  Dates, Data, xyCoords, InitializationDates and Members. This function is prepared to convert 
#'  the data sets loaded from the ECOMS User Data Gateway (ECOMS-UDG). See the loadeR.ECOMS R 
#'  package for more details (http://meteo.unican.es/trac/wiki/udg/ecoms/RPackage). 
#' 
#' @param obj.s3 A list the with the elements Variable, Dates, Data, xyCoords, InitializationDates 
#'  and Members
#
#' @import methods
#' 
#' @details  
#'  The visualization functions are programmed to work with S4 class. This function converts gridded 
#'  data sets (with more than one member) to S4 to use those functions. 
#'  
#' @note For gridded data sets with just one ensemble member use as.MrGrid function.
#'  For station data use as.MrStation function.
