When one does a vector import of a CSV file, is it possible to pick the color and shape of the markers that are drawn on the image?  I didn't see anything obvious but when you're as old as I am, sometimes the obvious isn't.

Once you have imported the CSV file as a vector into SeaDAS you can edit the color and shape of the markers. 

To do this go to the Layer Manager tool window.  Within this window select the layer associated with the CSV file (note: you select the layer to be the "active layer" by clicking on the layer name, if you toggle the checkbox you are just toggling the visibility of the layer within the image and not actually selecting the layer as selected).   You'll know it is selected when the layer name becomes highlighted in blue.

Next click on the "pencil" icon.  This will open the layer editor for the "active layer".  Then edit within this GUI, the shapes and colors of the markers.  This affects ALL points of the layer.

If you only wish to edit only a single point, then click on the selector (it's the arrow in the toolbar at the top) and this click on the point within the image which you wish to edit.  Then click on the pencil icon.  Now the layer editor is set to adjust that single point and not the full set of points.
