Abstract

Automated approaches for identifying different types of glaciated landscapes using digitally processed elevation data were evaluated. The AA. tested the ability of geomorphic measures (elevation, relative relief, roughness, and slope gradient) derived from digital elevation models (DEMs) to differentiate glaciated landscapes using maximum likelihood classification and artificial neural networks (ANN). The automated methods were trained and validated using an existing Quaternary geology map and a manual interpretation of the contour data portrayed on topographic quadrangles. The need for such methods arises from efforts to classify types of landscapes (e.g. ecoregions) in Michigan
