DEM-based slope unit derivation

Abstract

This paper focuses on slope unit derivation from DEM by object-based image analysis. A landform classification system consisting of ridge, valley, slope unit, and flat terrain classes is firstly constructed considering the detailed characteristics of slope unit. Based on the classification system, a procedure for slope unit derivation from DEM, which takes… (More)
