Title

Automating object representation of drainage basins

Abstract

A computer program written in “C” and designed to build a geomorphometric database of a drainage basin is given. The program operates on a raster representation of the stream network structure that may be derived from a number of previously presented approaches. An operational model of drainage basin structure is employed to recognize basic geomorphic objects and to compute their spatial and functional interrelationships. The resulting database may serve the purpose of automating geomorphometric analysis or may provide a framework for automating the construction of a high-level object oriented database model of the surface from more detailed, lower level data planes.
