Abstract

A program package (COREA) was developed, which computes a Digital Terrain Model (grid-DTM) from digitized contour lines, spot elevations and breaklines. From the DTM a Digital Slope Model and a Digital Curvature Model is derived. A comparison of the computer maps with manually drawn morphometric maps shows that the computer maps are more accurate and contain less errors. The areas of equal slope and curvature, which can be recognized by the computer, depend on the grid size of the DTM
