Surfer transforms XYZ data to create contour maps, 3D surface maps, 3D wireframe maps, shaded relief maps, rainbow color "image" maps, post maps, classed post maps, vector maps, and base maps. It can calculate cross sections, areas, and volumes. Types of files that can be imported Data file formats : XLS, DAT, SLK, Lotus and Symphony W??, CSV, ASCII, BNA, and BLN Grid file formats : ASCII GRD, binary GRD, USGS DEM, GTOPO30, SDTS DEM, DTED Base maps : EMF, E00, GSI, DXF, DLG, LGO, LGS, GSB, BNA, BLN, PLT, CLP, WMF, SHP, MIF, CMP, JPG, PNG, TIF, TGA, PCX, DCX, WPG, PCT GIF, and USGS SDTS TVP Types of files that can be exported Vector formats with map coordinates: BLN, GSB, GSI, DXF, SHP, BNA, MIF Vector formats with XYZ coordinates (contours only): DXF Bitmap formats: BMP, TIF, TGA, PCX, GIF, WPG, PCX, DCX, JPG, PICT, PNG Formats that support both bitmap and vector data: CGM, CLP, WMF, EMF EPS: Create an encapsulated PostScript file by installing a PostScript printer, connecting it to "FILE:", and printing to that driver.
