About this book

The only reference on the use of GIS and related technologies in terrain analysis In this landmark publication, reflecting the collaborative effort of thirteen research groups based in four countries, leading experts detail how GIS and related technologies, such as GPS and remote sensing, are now being used, with the aid of computer modeling, in terrain analysis. Continuing the innovative work of Professor Ian Moore, a visionary who saw terrain analysis as a robust method for modeling the large areas and complex spatial patterns of environmental systems, Terrain Analysis puts into action TAPES, or Terrain Analysis Programs for Environmental Sciences, Dr. Moore's innovative tool for terrain analysis. The book's contributors describe how TAPES are applied to specific geomorphologic problems, explain the algorithms used in current terrain analysis software, and examine the interpretation and use of terrain attributes in predictive models. With expert coverage of terrain analysis in the digital age, Terrain Analysis will be welcomed by ecologists, environmental engineers, geographers, and hydrologists who increasingly depend on GIS, GPS, and remote sensing.

Media reviews
."..an exceptionally well presented research volume that contains original and significant research papers providing a cutting edge synthesis of the potential of integrated environmental modelling." (Photogrammetric Record, October 2001)

"Overall, the book is ideal both for students and for researchers, both as a textbook and as a source of advanced reading. Those keen to pursue a research in terrain analysis will find the book very useful because it contains an extensive list of terrain parameters, compiled effectively with equations, diagrams, and explanations, and examples of their utilization in practical applications." (Environment and Planning Bi Planning and Design, Spring 2002)
