SurfLink

Brings the Best of Contouring to MapInfo!

SurfLink Figure 1

SurfLink is a software program for creating contour maps in MapInfo Professional using Surfer for Windows. SurfLink was developed
in 1997 and has been commercially available since then.

Now you can link the most popular contouring package available for Windows to MapInfo in four easy steps!

SurfLink takes you through a series of wizard-like interactive steps in creating a contour map.  Cue cards are provided for first time users.  Contour lines, Surfer grid data, and color-filled regions (with corresponding contour values) are exported instantly as MapInfo layers.

SurfLink Figure3 Advanced contour map operations such as
(1) contour grid rotation, (2) erasing (or blanking) a portion of the contour map, and (3) log-transform of data are also available.
Golden Software’s Surfer is a powerful contouring package, popular among scientists and engineers for nearly two decades!  Some of Surfer's gridding features include:
  • Specify faults and breaklines when gridding
  • Choose from one of the powerful gridding methods: Inverse Distance, Kriging, Minimum Curvature, Polynomial Regression, Triangulation, Nearest Neighbor, Shepard's Method, Radial Basis Functions, Natural Neighbor, Moving Average, and Local Polynomial
  • Specify isotropic or anisotropic weighting
  • Specify search ellipses at any orientation

Contour regions may be filled gradation of colors or fill patterns in Surfer.  SurfLinks imports these as region polygons in MapInfo, and along with the contour values (low and high values) associated with each filled region.

Bring the Z values with the contoured regions can be very useful for further geographic analyses in the GIS package.

Extensive on-line help is only a click away in SurfLink.  With cue-cards and online help, using SurfLink makes the process of creating contour maps a breeze. SurfLink Figure6
