Since 1985, Surfer has served the geoscience community. As the industry shifts and changes, Surfer has kept pace with new features and improvements based directly on feedback from users.
Today marks the 14th release of Surfer and boasts over 200 new features and enhancements. Designed to improve usability, streamline workflows, and ultimately save you time and money, Surfer v14 is an indispensable visualization tool for the geoscience industry.
The ability to edit contour lines is one of Surfer’s most highly requested features, and we are pleased to report this feature is available in the latest release!
A contour map is a two-dimensional representation of a surface where the surface is represented by contour lines. A contour line connects points of equal elevation, and the distance between contour lines represents the relative slope of the surface.
An exciting new Surfer feature is the Map Wizard. Create numerous maps in as little as three steps. The wizard is a great tool for Surfer newbies as it steps through the map creation process from raw data to interpolated grid to final map. More experienced Surfer users appreciate the ability to create multiple maps at once, and everyone benefits from the Data Preview window so you no longer open the incorrect file.
Step 1: Select Your Data – Select the data, grid, base map, or image file to create your map.
