Document title

The production of digital elevation models for experimental model landscapes

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Automated digital photogrammetry was used to produce digital elevation models of experimental model landscapes under controlled laboratory conditions as part of a series of rainfall erosion experiments looking at the evolution of landforms in response to erosion. The method allowed the elevations of the experimental landscapes to be studied in great detail on a regular grid digital terrain map. Digital photogrammetry produced elevation data at a resolution of 6 mm with a standard deviation of 2.0 mm over an experimental catchment relief of approximately 200 mm; this resolution is considerably better than that achievable by conventional manual photogrammetry
