Terrain research has been an energetic examine box for years and attracted learn reports from geographers, surveyors, engineers and laptop scientists. With the speedy progress of Geographical details approach (GIS) expertise, relatively the institution of excessive answer electronic Elevation types (DEM) at nationwide point, the problem is now eager about offering justifiable socio-economical and environmental merits. The contributions during this booklet signify the cutting-edge of terrain research tools and strategies in parts of electronic illustration, morphological and hydrological types, uncertainty and purposes of terrain research.

Example text

Continuing this process, one may conclude that the fractal dimension should vary along a given contour line (or along the land surface), so that a single fractal dimension cannot properly describe a contour line or land surface. Evans and McClean (1995) described land surface as multi-fractal, but this concept was rather opposed to the uni-fractal 36 Peter A. SHARY model, and no substantiated multi–fractal models were suggested in the literature. Attempts to use mathematical models of topography, such as based on Fourier or other orthogonal series, resulted in essential artefacts related to the land surface non-smooth nature.
