Surfer's automatic profile tool makes it easy to visualize the change in Z value from one point to another.

Simply select the map, add a profile, and draw the line on the map. Include as many points as you want in the line; it could be a simple two-point line, or a zig-zag shape. In all cases, the profile is created showing the Z value change along the length of the line. Reshape the line on the map, and the profile automatically updates.

Profile Features

  • Title and font properties
  • Setting any areas with missing data to skip, minimum Z value, or a custom value
  • Line and fill properties
  • X and Y scaling
  • Exporting the profile line to a text data file


Easily create a profile by simply drawing a line on the map!
