Profiles are accessed under Analysis | Profiles on the menu bar.
Displays a Polar Transform , Average Radial Profile and an Average Angular Profile of the data. Placing the cursor over the displays activates a crosshair, the exact coordinates of which are displayed at the bottom of the screen. The polar transform is an "unwrapped" image of the surface around the current coordinate system center.
The number of points to sample for both the radial and angular directions can be specified.
Allows manual specification of the endpoints of the line profile. The number of samples in the resulting line is specified as the Sample Resolution. Endpoints can be entered in Cartesian X-Y coordinates, polar coordinates, or use the fiducial button and select a specific fiducial in the fiducial editor.
A variety of vector Paths can be created on a surface. A path profile plot is a graph of surface heights along the path.
Allows the choice of path to use for the calculation. The number of evenly spaced samples along the path is specified as the Sample Resolution.
