new features

What’s New In Surfer 16?

There are many very exciting new features in Surfer 16!  We focused on increasing usability, improving workflows to increase time savings, and including the most popular new features requested. The top new features are listed below.  A more complete list of the new features can be found by clicking the ? button in the upper right corner of the program to open the Help. On the Contents page in the Help, navigate to Surfer 16 | Introduction | New Features.


  1. View point data in true 3D space in the 3D View 

View and explore your XYZ point data in 3D! If your point data used for Post, Classed Post, or Base from Data maps contains a Z component (or some other component value for each XY point), you can now show this data in the 3D View. These points can be colored, sized and have 2D or 3D symbols. You can display this data along with your surface, contour and color relief maps in true 3D!

  1. featuresVisualize your data more effectively with the new Colormap Editor

You told us and we listened! You wanted a better Colormap Editor, with more flexible and powerful options for representing your data – and we have provided!

  • New colormap presets better fit your data
  • Add, remove, rename and rearrange presets in the Preset drop down menu
  • Separate color mapping and opacity mapping allows more control over how to best represent your data. Easily set the fill to be gradually transparent or opaque, or insert or delete opacity nodes to get the transparency settings you need.
  • The histogram behind both the colormap and opacity map shows the spread of values in your data, so you can easily see where you need more colors or different opacity settings to represent the data
  • Change the colormap stretch to Evenly distribute(equal spacing between nodes) or Equalize (a.k.a. equal area stretch, nodes are placed so that the same amount of data is between each node pair)
  • Change the colormap method to different options for interpreting the color gradation from node to node
  • Select between linear or logarithmic scaling for the colormap values to emphasize small changes in the colors
  1. Create contours with equal area in each interval

Are you tired of spending painstaking hours calculating equal-area intervals for your contour maps? That’s all in the past, Surfer now does it for you with the click of a button! Simply change the level method to Equal area and specify the number of contour intervals you would like. The area per interval is handily displayed for your reference. Histogram equalization can be essential to detect and image subtle variations when more extreme values also exist.

  1. Formatting objects has never been easier
  • Copy and paste formatting! If you have multiple items of the same type (e.g. four contour layers) that you want to all the be the same, simply copy the format for one layer and paste it onto the other layers. No need to tediously going through setting all properties to be the same. This works for all object types such as axes, legends, map scales, map layers, etc.
  • Duplicate objects! You can now duplicate maps, map layers and other objects with the click of a button! Once you have your layer just the way you want it, you don’t have to recreate all the settings for each grid file to create new maps. Simply duplicate the layer and swap out the grid file.
  • Move or copy objects to base layers! You can move or copy objects between vector base layers with ease. Even better, you can now simply drag and drop objects in the Contents window from one base layer to another, or drag and drop drawn objects from the plot window (like text or polygons) straight into a vector base layer. Different coordinate systems? No worries, Surfer takes care of everything for you on the fly.  
  1. Attribute Table 

These new features will greatly increase the usability of the Attribute Table and the Base Symbology feature, released in Surfer 15. 

  • Copy and paste multiple attribute values from Excel into the Attribute Table
  • Save the attribute table to a new file, such as DBF, XLSX, DAT, TXT, CSV. This is very useful for updating the DBF file for a SHP!
  • Query objects directly from the Attribute Table, so you can find the features you need!
  • Add the geometry measurements as attributes to your vector objects. You can either add the geometry attributes to one object at a time, or add the geometry attributes for all objects in the entire layer from the Attribute Table. Choose which geometry to add as attributes (e.g. area, length, XY point position, etc), and choose which units to use! For example, add polygon areas in square kilometers, or polyline lengths in miles.
  • Perform mathematical calculations on fields in the Attribute Table! This is tremendously useful when new attributes must be created based on results from existing attributes. 
  • Utilize Find and Replace to find or edit attribute information!
  1. Change the height or width of color scales and scale bars 

Change the height and width of color scales, or the height of map scale bars, in the scale bar properties without distorting the text labels! Now your color scales and scale bars can look their finest.

  1. Contour map color scale bar improvements
  • Display contour line properties on the color scale! See the contour line properties with or without contour fill.
  • Add the last label for the maximum value on the color scale
  1. Hyperlink

Hyperlink objects using attributes. Link to web URLs or files such as spreadsheets or images. Include the link location and a link description in the attribute, and then view the hyperlink to quickly open the link!

  1. Base Layers

There have been many improvements to working with base layers to help you get your work done faster and easier!

  • Interactively drag and drop labels to new positions
  • Format numeric labels
  • Apply a colormap to the unclassed and classed symbols symbologies
  • Change the units for the geometry (e.g. length, area, perimeter) of vector objects (e.g. from meters to feet, miles, kilometers, etc)
  • Import grid-type TIF files (i.e. TIF images with Z values) as raster images in a base layer
  1. Query

Improve the versatility of your Query operations with these new tools:

  • Export the results of your query to a file for use in other software
  • Move or copy selected objects from a query to a new map layer, so you can easily identify or edit the query results
  1. Gridding
  • Grid your data with the new gridding option, kriging with external drift. Specify a grid of another variable for the external drift.
  • Copy the geometry settings from another grid file! Accept the default extents and resolution for the output grid geometry, or select any existing grid and Surfer will automatically enter the same geometry settings. This option is available wherever you need to specify the geometry for an output grid file.
  • Advanced options has an updated property-manager style user interface.
  1. Automation

We added the following commands (previously only available through the user interface) to our Scripter automation model:

  • Add and edit graticule layers
  • Perform queries
  • Save gridding and volume reports
  • Perform geoprocessing commands:
    • line thinning
    • line smoothing
    • buffer
    • create intersection points
    • change type
    • connect polylines
    • union, intersect, or difference of polygons
    • break polyline
    • break polyline at intersections
    • combine island/lakes
    • split island/lakes
  1. Import/Export
  • Import ESRI File Geodatabase (.FGDB)
  • Export GPX from the plot window
  • Save the worksheet as a DBF, perfect for editing your SHP attributes
  • Export contour fill polygons with the Z minimum as both the 3D value and as a ZLEVEL attribute value
