Topographic Index - Why is upslope contributing area divided by downslope contour width and not upslope contour width?
In the Topographic Index calculation, a is the upslope contributing area per unit contour length. Is the "unit contour length" calculated from examining the contour widths of the downslope cells that ...
What steps does SAGA GIS take when calculating Topographic Wetness, specifically when handling depression filled (by ArcMap) DEM
I am a grad student involved with hydrological modeling. In the model I work on, we are calculating the Topographic Index (TI; without transmissivity - or set to 1) using Quinn's MFD algorithm. We do ...
I do have DEM of 1x1 meter and original LiDAR point cloud in .las, that DEM is made of. I need to extract river dikes (highest points of the dikes) to vector feature (point, polyline). Any idea for ...
What sort of algorithms can I use to find a least cost path through a DEM where it costs more to traverse a cell going downhill or uphill than it does to follow the contour of the land? All the ...
In generating an elevation profile, samples from the underlying raster must be taken. If the objective is to create a profile of maximum quality, how should the locations of sample points be ...
is it possible to calculate shadow areas of buildings or simulate shadows of buildings in a city using e-cognition software, with the DSM of the buildings and the sun angle and azimuth known?....if ...
is it possible to use hillshade function in ArcMap to calculate shadow areas of buildings or simulate shadows of buildings, using DSM of the buildings and the sun angle and azimuth?
