Tomislav Hengl, Hannes I. Reuter Elsevier, - стор. The focus of geomorphometry is the calculation of surface-form measures land-surface parameters and features objects , which may be used to improve the mapping and modelling of landforms to assist in the evaluation of soils, vegetation, land use, natural hazards, and other information. This book provides a practical guide to preparing Digital Elevation Models DEM for analysis and extracting land-surface parameters and objects from DEMs through a variety of software.
