My Surfer map appears as a single axis or line. How do I change the Map Scale?

When X and Y data cover vastly different data ranges, the map may appear as a single axis or line. This is because the X and Y axes are scaled proportionally by default.


You can change the scale of the map to expand the map in the thin direction. To change the scale of the map, follow these steps:

  1. Select Map in the Contents window.
  2. In the Properties window, click the Scale tab.
  3. Uncheck Proportional XY Scaling.
  4. Specify the Map units per in. or Length (page units) for the X Scale and/or Y Scale.
