About this book

This publication is the first book on the development and application of digital terrain modelling for regional planning and policy support. It is a compilation of research results by international research groups at the European Commission's Joint Research Centre, providing scientific support to the development and implementation of EU environmental policy. Applications include the pan-European River and Catchment Database, European Flood Alert System, European Digital Soil Database and alternative solar energy resources, all discussed in a GIS framework in the context of the INfrastructure for SPatial InfoRmation in Europe (INSPIRE). This practice-oriented book is recommended to practicing environmental modellers and GIS experts working on regional planning and policy support applications.


Digital Terrain Analysis in a GIS Environment.- From Mathematical Morphology to Morphological Terrain Features.- Optimisation of Interpolation Parameters Using Cross-validation.- Scale-dependent Effect of Input Data Design on DEM Accuracy.- SRTM as a Possible Source of Elevation Information for Soil-landscape Modelling.- Development of a PAN-European River and Catchment Database.- Decision Supporting Hydrological Model for River Basin Flood Control.- Potential Flood Hazard and Risk Mapping at PAN-European Scale.- High-Resolution DEM for Design of Flood Emergency Reservoirs.- A Quantitative Procedure for Building Physiographic Units for the European Soter Database.- Solar Resource Modelling for Energy Applications.
