    Hi Griff,

     

    ECW files typically have spatial referencing information embedded into them. It sounds as if you might be clicking File | Import to bring the file into Surfer. Try clicking Home | New Map | Base and then selecting the file to load it as a georeferenced base map.

    When you have done that, if the file is not georeferenced, you can right-click the base layer in the Contents window and select Georeference Image to spatially calibrate the input.

     

    Best wishes,

    Thanks for the quick reply, I was importing as a base but seeing image pixels as coordinates instead of the real-world ones I assume are assigned to the ECW file. Maybe I'm still doing something wrong though. 

     

    Thanks

    Hi Griff,

     

    You're welcome! It sounds like it might be something unusual with your file. You can email it to us at support@goldensoftware.com and we can take a closer look.
