About this book

Terrain analysis has been an active study field for years and attracted research studies from geographers, surveyors, engineers and computer scientists. With the rapid growth of Geographical Information System (GIS) technology, particularly the establishment of high resolution Digital Elevation Models (DEM) at national level, the challenge is now focused on delivering justifiable socio-economical and environmental benefits. The contributions in this book represent the state-of-the-art of terrain analysis methods and techniques in areas of digital representation, morphological and hydrological models, uncertainty and applications of terrain analysis.


Section 1: Digital Representation for Terrain Analysis
Section 2: Morphological Terrain Analysis
Section 3: Hydrological Terrain Analysis
Section 4: Uncertainty in Terrain Analysis
Section 5: Applications of Terrain Analysis
