Completing Fragmentary River Networks via Induced Terrain

  title={Completing Fragmentary River Networks via Induced Terrain},
  author={Tsz-Yam Lau and W. Randolph Franklin},
Fragmentary river segments have to be joined appropriately before becoming useful to addressing transportation problems like route planning and pollutant tracking. We suggest the induced terrain approach to complete the job with high accuracy and efficiency. By first approximating a terrain compatible with the partial river segment and height information, and then deriving a river network from that induced terrain, we effectively enforce the restrictions imposed by the height observations… CONTINUE READING
