For the Surfer Profile, what are the units of the X and Y axes?

The X axis shows the distance along the section line, starting at 0 and increasing to the length of the section line. The units are whatever units the X and Y units are for the grid it was created from. If you wish the Distance units to be in other units (e.g. if your map is in lat/lon units and you want the distance to be in meters or feet), change the coordinate system for the map to a system with the linear units desired and then recreate the profile.

 

The Y axis shows the Z value of the grid at that particular point on the section line. The units are whatever units the Z units are for the grid it was created from.
