AbstractFloodplain delineation it very important in geomorphology and hydrology. Nowadays DEMs are the most used representations of terrain and landforms. We present a method of morphological floodplain delineation from DEMs based on cluster analysis of geomorphometric variables and class spectral statistics. The method is easy to be implemented in most GIS packages and perform well on different scales and DEM sources. The precision of the delineation depends on the DEM resolution.
