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.

Business executives may be interested in ensuring the company is reaching its potential customers and expanding the user base to new areas. Use Surfer's base symbology feature to visualize current customer locations and choose where energies can be focused for new growth!

Population data can be used in many industries including civil engineering, infrastructure planning, education, and more. Surfer's base symbology feature can be used to highlight counties or cities with the largest population using data that is readily available online or through your local government.

Combining the ability to map statistical information about a study area with x,y,z location data using Surfer's grid and base map features will lead to new levels of map making!
