A METHOD FOR THE AUTOMATIC DESIGN OF SLOPE CONTOUR MAPS

SU DI UN METODO PER IL DISEGNO AUTOMATICO DI CARTE CLIVOMETRICHE

The article describes and illustrates a method for the automatic production of contour maps by computer, based on a digitalization of the terrain, which consists in producing a polyhedric geometrical model of triangular components by the use of a squared grid over the topographic map. The method of calculation is explained and the program flow chart presented. The application of the procedure in land use planning is discussed. /TRRL/
