Surfer wireframe maps provide an impressive three dimensional display of your data. Wireframes are created by connecting Z values along lines of constant X and Y.
Use color zones, independent XYZ scaling, orthographic or perspective projections at any tilt or rotation angle, and different combinations of X, Y and Z lines to produce exactly the surface you want. Drape a color-filled contour map over a wireframe map to create the most striking color or black-and-white representations of your data. The possibilities are endless.
A wireframe map can be used to display any combination of X,Y, and Z lines.
A USGS SDTS DEM file was used to create this map and color zones were defined for the X and Y lines.
3D Wireframe Map Features
- Display any combination of X,Y, and Z lines
- Use automatic or user-defined color zones to highlight different Z levels
- Stack any number of 3D surfaces on a single page
- Optional hidden line removal
- Overlay any combination of contour, filled contour, base, post, and classed post maps on a surface
- Views of the top or bottom of the surface, or both
- Proportional or independent scaling in the X,Y, and Z dimensions
- Full control over axis tick marks and tick labels
- Add a base with optional vertical base lines
- Display the surface at any rotation or tilt angle
Apply color to 3D wireframe maps to emphasize the change in Z value.
