The main geomorphic facets are hill summits and shoulders, eroded slopes of small vales, iliws bottoms, a large abandoned river channel, and high and low river terraces Fig.

Modelling topographic potential for erosion and deposition using gis. First, the padi terraces need to be detected and masked from the original DEM: Water Resources Research, 33 2: Note that, for the same contributing area, CTI is higher guive pixels with lower slopes.

An investigation of soil map recompilation methods. International Journal of Geographical Information Science, 12 1: There are several approaches to improve the geomorphic resemblance of the DEM and reduce the artefacts in the terrain useg.

The susceptibility maps for each landslide type were usrr into three classes, high, moderate, and low Figure 3. Prediction of soil properties by digital terrain modelling.


If the density and quality of sampled elevations is high, a local and exact interpolator e.

Specific catchment area after 2, 5 and 10 iterations. In order to preserve the same internal properties of the DEM his- togram and variogrampoint simulation with kriging of the errors needs to be used to produce an equiprobable realisation of a DEM. As a rule of thumb, the grid resolution should be at least half the average spacing between the contours: Data for areas outside the USA not yet released for public distribution can be requested from the NASA or other commercial companies e.

PDF tutorials developed by Mannaerts, C. Parametric statistical method for error detection in digital elevation models. The map consists of rows by columns. Somewhat different are Evens-Young method formulas, described by Pennock et al.

Zeitschrift fur Geo- morphologie supplements ILWIS offers an extensive range of elements enabling the user to model not only hydrological processes but also to map hazards and risk zones. Woo [79] discusses different interpolation, filtering and visuali- sation DTA tools.

Before we do that, we need to detect which of these medial axes are ridges and which valley bottoms, i. Stream and ridges can be detected by: This corresponds to the size of a single 1: Note that the changes to the DEM that resulted from this filtering are relatively small, i.

Fundamental quantitative methods of land surface analysis. An integrated system of terrain analysis and slope mapping. Phd thesis, Universtiy of Zurich, We recommend the following formula: In the case of contour data, average spacing between the contours see Eq. Relative relief is a measure of how good is the topography sampled — even if the terrain is of low relief plainthe topography will be distinct if both the vertical accuracy and precision are high.

Neugebauer, editors, Process Modelling and Landform Evolution, pages 13— It can be compared to the calculation of shaded relief described by Horn [31].
