AbstractA method for automatic connection of Loess shoulder line is designed in this paper. Firstly, according to the morphological characteristics of loess hillslope, raster points on the position of shoulder-lines are detected based on high resolution DEM data. Then buffer curve of divide line sets as the initial curve. Thirdly, initial curve is forced to creep to shoulder-line points under the guidance of the hillslope flow direction matrix to make a continuous shoulder line. Experiments in the loess hilly-gully area show the continuity and precision of results meet our need and have good agreement with the real topography.
