SLOPE MEASUREMENT FROM CONTOUR MAPS

TWO METHODS OF ESTIMATING SLOPE GRADIENTS FROM A DIGITIZED CONTOUR MAP ARE DESCRIBED. THE FIRST METHOD USES AMOUNT OF CONTOUR LINE PER UNIT AREA AS A SLOPE MEASURE, WHEREAS THE SECOND COMPUTES SLOPE BY MEASURING DISTANCES TO NEAREST CONTOUR LINES. BOTH METHODS HAVE BEEN IMPLEMENTED IN PAX II ON THE UNIVAC 1108 COMPUTER. /AUTHOR/
