    Hello Iniobong,

    Are the values in the Grid Line Geometry section in the Grid Data dialog the defaults, or did you manually enter those in?

    If those are the defaults, I would say it looks like you have one or more data point that has incorrect x and/or y value(s), since the range of values your screenshot is showing is very large for UTM values (especially in the Y direction). Once your x and y ranges are closer to 1:1, the number of grid lines in the x and y directions should be closer to equal, so the desired output map should be closer to square. 

    If these are values you entered in, and you're sure they're correct, you can just increase the # of Lines for the Y Direction in the Grid Data dialog, and then change the scaling of the map to not be proportional in the x and y directions in order to display a map that is closer to square.

    Thanks!

    Hello Leslie,

    Thanks for the response. The values in the Grid Line Geometry section are in their default because I would usually get what I want leaving things in their default. Like I earlier mentioned I had quite a desired output at first but the subsequent trials proved futile.

    For a change, if it wouldn't be a bother, could you run the points from the screenshot and see what plot result you would have and share it?

     

    Thanks

    Hello Iniobong,

    I would be happy to grid the data to let you know what I get. Would you mind sending the entire data file to leslie@goldensoftware.com? The portion I can see in the screenshot has very little variation in X and Y, and I can see there's a lot more data that isn't showing, so I doubt I would be able to duplicate the issue using just what I can see in the screenshot.

    Thanks!
