Surfer ist eine umfassende 3D Visualisierungs-, Contouring- und Oberflächenmodellierungs-Software, die auf Microsoft Windows läuft. Surfer wird vor allem für Geländemodellierung, bathymetrische Modellierung, Landschaftsvisualisierung, Oberflächenanalyse, Konturmapping, Wasserscheide und 3D Oberflächenmodellierung, Gridding, Volumetrics und viele mehr verwendet.
Surfers einzigartige Interpolations-Engine transformiert Ihre XYZ Daten in hochqualitative Karten. Surfer bietet mehr Gridding Methoden und mehr Kontrolle über Gridding Parameter, auch anpassbare Variogramme, als jede andere Software auf dem Markt. Sie können ebenfalls Griddateien benutzen, die Sie aus anderen Quellen haben, wie beispielsweise USGS DEM Dateien oder ESRI Griddateien. Stellen Sie Ihr Raster als herausragende Kontour, 3D Oberfläche, 3D Drahtgittermodell, Wasserscheide, Vektor, Bild, geschummertes Relief oder Postkarte dar. Fügen Sie Basiskarten hinzu oder kombinieren Sie Kartentypen um die aufschlussreichste Darstellung zu kreiern. Jeder Aspekt Ihrer Karte kann individuell angepasst werden, damit Sie genau die Präsentation erhalten, die Sie sich wünschen. Es war noch nie so einfach, Karten in hochster Qualität zu gestalten.
You work hard gathering your data. Don’t settle for subpar visualization. Utilize Surfer’s extensive modeling tools to display your data the way it deserves while maintaining accuracy and precision. Clearly communicate information with Surfer.
Surfer appears to have been designed by people who really understand what scientists like myself want to do. This allows me to look at data and ask questions without being concerned with the technicalities of how to load, manipulate and map data.
Barry Gardiner, Senior Scientist
Discover the depths of your data with Surfer’s numerous analysis tools. Adjust interpolation and gridding parameters, assess the spatial continuity of data with variograms, define faults and breaklines, or perform grid calculations such as volumes, transformations, smoothing, or filtering. Surfer quickly transforms your data into knowledge.
The wide variety and functionality of the interpolation/extrapolation algorithms, as well as the geostatistical functionality, is simply awesome!

Surfer User Interface Features
Enhance Maps & Models
Surfer gives you the tools to visualize and model all types of data, but it doesn’t stop there. Surfer’s extensive customization options allow you to convey complex ideas in an easy to understand manner. Enhance your maps and models with a variety of customizations options.
Surfer Customization Options
Full Grid Control
Surfer gives you extensive control over grid files. Create isopach maps for structural geology, calculate volumes for inventory management or derivatives for terrain analysis, and even create site suitability models all with grid files. Achieve a complete understanding of your underlying data.
Surfer Grid Features
Edit contour lines down to the finest detail. Surfer’s grid editor lets you quickly adjust contour lines by interactively editing the underlying grid file. Brush, warp, smooth, push down or up, and erase grid nodes, and immediately see the changes to your grid-based maps.
Grid Data with Certainty
Have complete confidence in the accuracy of your model. Surfer provides numerous interpolation methods to grid regularly or irregularly spaced data onto a grid or raster, and each interpolation method provides complete control over gridding parameters. Plus, no time is wasted with multithreaded gridding!
