Digital Terrain Modeling: Acquisition, Manipulation And Applications
With its expanding array of applications in everything from biodiversity modeling to wireless communications, it's no wonder digital terrain modeling (DTM) -- the electronic process of representing topography in three dimensions -- is a hot subject among engineers and geoscientists. This concise resource is the first truly complete guide to this growing field. It combines a mathematically rigorous treatment of DTM generation, manipulation, and analysis together with the full spectrum of real-world applications. The book describes the various data acquisition techniques and explains how to determine the most appropriate DTM generation method for any given project. Practitioners find a detailed treatment of DTM data structures and interpolation methods, including extensive coverage of critical Kriging analysis techniques.
