Can I filter my data by another column in Surfer's Grid Data dialog?

Surfer's data filter allow you to filter data by X, Y, and Z variables as well as any column in the worksheet containing numeric data.  To filter data by a worksheet column during gridding, follow the steps below.

  1. Click Home | Grid Data | Grid Data.
  2. In the Open Data dialog, select your data file and click Open.
  3. In the Grid Data dialog, click Filter Data.
  4. In the Filter dialog, enter the desired expression such as _E = -999. Where E is the desired worksheet column.  The underscore differentiates worksheet columns from standard X, Y, or Z variables.
  5. Click OK.
  6. In the Grid Data dialog, set the gridding parameters as desired.
  7. If desired, click Statistics to verify the filter is applied as desired.
  8. Click OK in the Grid Data dialog.

The same filters can be applied in the worksheet using the Data | Data | Spatial Filter command or when creating a variogram using the Grids | New Grid | Variogram | New Variogram command.
