Make Meaningful Maps with Symbology in Surfer

Surfer's new base symbology feature can be used to create thematic maps. Thematic maps are used in a wide variety of fields to illustrate attributes or statistics about defined areas. For example, thematic maps can be used to show the population of counties in a region or the number of oil wells in a geographic zone. Combined with Surfer's already powerful gridding and mapping features, base symbology opens the door for even more advanced data modeling and additional clarity in data presentation.
