Triangles and kebabs (from Geomorphometry 2009)

Sitting on a bench at a friend's house in Brest, France, I look at the windy landscape and think of triangles and kebabs - a strange combination of thoughts, I know, but its origin can be found in the last events of my life, as you will soon understand.

geomorphometry terrain toolbox

Short title: 

ArcInfo Arc Marco Language Code (AML) Geomorphometry Toolbox contains a collection of terrain analysis scripts which can be used with a installation of ArcInfo's Workstation. Please note: They are not working with ARCVIEW and also not directly with ArcGIS, even if it is possible to run AML Code from inside ArcGIS. Still, you need ArcInfo Work Station installed. For a quick start please refer to readme.txt for some command calls or to the outdated topomanual2.pdf.

Nominations for Geomorphometry 2011

At the moment, there are three provisional nominations for the 2011 conference:

  1. University of Southern California (John P. Wilson);
  2. University of Colorado (Scott Peckham);
  3. University of Salzburg (Lucian Dragut & Clemens Eisank);

The official nominations for the next conference are now invited to submit an official proposal in the coming 60 days.


The proposal to organize the next Geomorphometry meeting should include: 

IALE2009 Symposium6 presentations online

Perhaps some of presentations could be of interest to geomorphometrists?

Lucian Drãgut, Ulrich Walz and Thomas Blaschke have organized the 6th Symposium- The third and fourth dimensions of landscapes- within the European Conference IALE2009. The contents of presentations in the symposium, as well as introduction and concluding remarks are available below:
