How To Calculate Relief On A Topographic Map

An elevation profile or a topographic profile is a two dimensional cross sectional view of the landscape. Note that if dimensionssquare in the right side of this form the larger of these two values will be used for both height width. Topographic roughness may be based on standard deviation of slope standard deviation of elevation slope convexity variability of plan convexity contour curvature or some other measure of topographic texture.
