Abstract

The aim of this paper was to capitalize on the reproduction of terrain shape in generating DEMs and assessing DEM uncertainty and its effects on slope models. The test site was composed of 2 contiguous catchments in the Central Plateaus of Burundi which are characterized by a hilly landscape with round-shape summits, developed on folded Precambrian rocks. The research was conducted at a catchment scale so as to account for the landscape complexity at the catena level, i.e. from the valley floor to the hilltop or watershed divide
