Hydrological or flow-accumulation based terrain uzer describe potential flow of material, i. In this example Fig. Some of the features are shown below. Hence, three main groups will be described: The process of DEM filtering can be considered as a set of steps, which can be applied iteratively to produce a realistic DEM, i.

Hill shading and the reflectance map.

US Geological Survey, It can be used for automated watershed and sub-basin delineation, geometric parameter computation, hydrologic parameter computation and visualization of results.

The criteria trees were generated for the factors that contributed to the susceptibility of three types of mass movement: This gives a stratified map, which can be polygonized using: Here, the main assumption is that the fraction of the area draining through each grid element is proportional to the slope angle into that cell. The SINS is also derived using the first and second order derivatives [61]: The Baranja hill dataset1 consists of: New methods and tools for grass gis.

First the DEM map is sliced using an equal interval, e. A DEM implies that elevation ghide available continuously at liwis location in the study area. This is especially important for the calculation of hydrological parameters and curvatures where we are more interested in the general picture of the processes. As a rule of thumb, the grid resolution should be at least half the average spacing between the contours: The second problem is the undefined pixels, which are either due to division by zero or these are values outside a feasible range.

The susceptibility maps guixe each landslide type were classified into three classes, high, moderate, and low Figure 3. The padi terraces are formed when all rays of the interpolation algorithm finds the same contour value in the neighbourhood.

Woo [79] discusses different interpolation, filtering and visuali- sation DTA tools. No part of this book may be published, reproduced, or stored in a database or retrieval system, in any form or in any way, either mechanically, electronically, by print, photocopy or any other means, without the prior written permission of the authors. As illustrated in Figure 1, the map window is not presented in the main workspace.

The shadow areas can no be simply depicted as the areas where a change occured: Here, the contours present mapped changes inflection points of elevation8. The triangulatd irregular network. The GRID DEM is typically stored as a raster map or imagewhere each pixel carries the information on elevation or terrain parameter.

International Journal of Applied Earth…. Because the spacing between the contours is much narrower in the hill than in the plain, we finally decided to use a grid usr of 25 m. Subsequently, the criteria were normalized, i.


The finer grid resolutions and flexible algorithms often give more satisfactory for the end-users [77]. Wilson and Gallant [76] produced a comprehensive overview of DTA methods, including an overview of applications to geomorphology, hydrol- ogy, soil and vegetation mapping.

Hence, in the case of contour data, the vertical precision ilwiis be estimated using: The kriging weights are solved using the covariance function and relative distances between all pixels. This is because, in general, a number of input parameters is required. Note that the contour data or any other sampled elevation datasets are not DEMs! When calculating the second derivatives of elevation, it is advisable to smooth the ele- vation values Z5 to get a more generalised picture of the terrain parameters.

It cannot be excluded, however, that also a small number of real features such as small lakes and depressions that can occur naturally were corrected away. Soil attribute prediction using terrain analysis. Corripio International Journal of Geographical Information….
