Information is collected from a region of interest using a scanning probe microscope having a tip by moving the tip along at least one predefined path extending from a center location to a peripheral location in the region of interest and collecting information using the tip at a plurality of sample points along the at least one predefined path. The predefined path may be based on a radial line defined between the center location and the peripheral location, and may follow a zig-zag, sinusoidal, constant-curve, rectangular trajectory generally tracking the radial line.
