I am quite new to the hydrology toolset in ArcGIS and thought it may be useful for extracting slope data from a raster. I was wondering if anyone had experience trying to extract slope data upslope from a point?
I basically need to find a location 10 meters (on the ground, not as the crow flies) up the steepest slope from a known X,Y location. As a 10m buffer will not take into account surface geomorphology, I was wondering if anyone had any ideas regarding tools that could be useful? Seems like drainage tools could be handy in this case, but I'm not sure which ones to use or how to create a polyline from drainage raster datasets.
This would eventually be put into a python script to automate slope extraction for landslides.
