For what are you going to use the program?
  • school, hydrology, geology, practical work and entairtemaint for mys university and it is very important for me to do that if i wanna pass

  • I am going to use Surfer to make a resistivity profile for my final research work at University. It's my first time using it so it will take me some learning.

  • landscaping architecture, modelling of land use and urban planning and designing a model town as a part on research project cxc xcxc xcxc xcx

  • i intend making use for academic use especially for my final year students project which is on the application of vertical electrical sounding geophysical method in groundwater potential mapping

  • To draw contour map using data obtained from a topographic survey conducted on the campus of the university .to be submitted as assignment .

What similar programs have you used?
  • I have used ArcGIS, Google earth and Geosoft oasis Montaj. I am not really sure if they are related. I want to learn how to useSurfer software

  • Matlab is one of the best simulation and programming which prepares us to learn more in scientific researches as mathematics, history and informatics

  • Not used any similar program.Wsh to use processing of mineral exploration data with three coordinates like x,y,z geological data for geostatistical modelling

  • Similar programs have not been used before. This is the first time that I wish to try out the contouring freeware for a trial out experience

  • i didnt use any program like surfer before and i want this software please let me download it if i can because i need it for my university project

What do you like most about this program?
  • Improving practical opportunities in the three-dimensional imaging of geologically facilities, as well as a graphical simulation of the theoretical research results.

  • this program shows a where we can download free open source software helpful to students studying geographic information systems such as maps

  • i like to do homework and stuff for mi hobbie, trsins, travels and other fine lucky activitties, after my math classes and the pool time of play

  • i want to make some practice on how to create contour ,digital elevation model, 3D which will assist me on my profesional on geoinformatics as a student

  • because i like this program iell s vary vou are about to download Surfer 4 from our server AleThe best download speedFile is free of spyware and viruses


Surfer is a flexible, powerful and easy-to-use 3D surface mapping and contouring package. It transforms your information into colorful vector maps, image, posts, wireframe, contour and surfaces. Surfer is an affordable tool that gives you the possibility of working with irregular space XYZ data. You can easily import the data and they will be transformed into publication-quality maps.

Surfer is usually used for landscape virtualization, contouring, terrain modeling, surface analysis, volumetric, gridding, 2D maps generation, and other tasks. Other interesting features are interactively measuring area and distance or automatic profiles. Surfer has facilities to perform these operations. The user can also include attributes such as labels and edit them or export them.

Several maps can be obtained quickly and in a simple way, even with the advantage of combining map types or adding base maps. You can also personalize the results and produce exactly the maps you are looking for. The customized aspects gave a lot of power to this program. There is free technical support available and a user guide.

Multiple uses of this software

Surfer is the referent contour and gridding mapping software. Geologist use it as it can help them a lot in their jobs, however, Surfer is also used by engineers and hydrologists. With this software you can use more than 10 gridding techniques, for instance, convert irregularities in spaced XYZ into a uniform grid by Kriging with variograms.

You will also have 8 customizable maps in 2D and 3D in which you can display digital elevations or grids. Within those maps you can find several types such as image, contour, shaded relief, watershed, 1-grid and 2-grid vector, etc. If you add post, base maps, and classed posts, you will enhance the display. Besides, the 3D maps and Contour maps will be very accurate and clear.
