fer is the most powerful, flexible, and easy-to-use contouringand 3D surface mapping package available.Sur
fer easily andaccurately transforms your data into spectacularly colorful con- tour, surface, wireframe, shaded relief, image, post, and vector maps in minutes! And best of all,Sur
fer is affordable!Since 1984, over 100,000 scientists and engineers worldwidehave discoveredSur
fer'spower and simplicity.Sur
fer'soutstand-ing gridding and contouring capabilities have madeSur
fer thesoftware of choice for working with irregularly spaced XYZdata. Over the years,Sur
fer users have included hydrologists,engineers, geologists, archeologists, oceanographers, biolo-gists, foresters, geophysicists, medical researchers, climatolo-gists, and more! Anyone wanting to visualize their data withstriking clarity and accuracy will benefit fromSur
Powerful – Simple – Proven
The software of choice forcreating contour maps!
Surface maps display your data as rendered 3D surfaces. Overlay surface maps with other surfacemaps to generate informative block diagrams.
fer provides more gridding methods andmore control over gridding parameters thanany other software package on the market.Sur
ferwill quickly interpolate irregularly or regularly spaced data into a useful, functionalmap. UseSur
fer'sdefault settings or choose from twelve different gridding methods. Eachgridding method provides complete controlover an abundant number of gridding param-eters to generate the most accurate map pos-sible to best represent your data. Creatinghigh-precision maps has never been so easy!
In addition to creating surfaces, grid files allow you to performa variety of functions. Just a few of the possibilities are calcu-lating volume and area, subtracting or adding grid files, or converting outliers to a minimum or maximum value. Grid files also enable you to apply filters to emphasize details or remove background variation, blank a grid file to prevent con- tours from being drawn through specific areas (buildings,roads, or outside of field areas), or create cross sections.
Numerous Grid Functions!
The possibilities are limited only by your imagination! Customize your maps so they look their best! Each of Sur
fer’s ten map types has a multitude of editing options to enhance itsappearance. Change line colors and thicknesses, edit pointshapes, sizes, and colors, or add gradient color fills and color scale bars. Contour maps allow you to manipulate contour lineintervals, thickness, color, and labeling. For shaded relief mapsand 3D surface maps, quickly change the lighting angle for arealistic appearance. Create maps with multitudes of informa- tion by including scale bars, legends, and labels. These are justsome of the endless optionsSur
fer offers to easily create themost colorful, descriptive, and understandable maps – ready for publication!
fer includes an integrateddata analysis tool for variogram modeling. Byapplying the Krigingalgorithm, the variogrammodel aids in selecting anappropriate gridding model.Options for creating informative maps are endless! The smallest detailsare easy to apply and modify withSur
