we use surfer mainly for processing datas surveyed with topographic and bathymetric equipment.
When coastline/river/road is straight, usually an intelligent use of breaklines, etc is enough to obtain good results.
When coastline is not straight, it would be extremely useful to have user-selectable intepolating direction. the example below is self-explnatory:
- points are acquired along runlines (blu lines perpendicular to coastline 28 to 33)
- whatever algorithm is used and whatever number of breaklines (even 1000+) are inputted by the user, there is not actually any way to get decent results with surfer: with kriging (or any other algorithms), it is ony possible to choose only 1 preferred interpolating direction in advanced options below, but it works only for lines 29-30 and 31
- it would be much better if the user could input not anymore 1 interpolating direction, but an interpolating trajectory (represented with the red arrow), as a special breaklines or CSV file or whatever. This implementation would give extremely better results and save a lot of time in inputting a wide number of breaklines, making surfer extremely better and performing1
is it possible to have it implemented?
