Extracting Topographic Terrain Features from Elevation Maps

I Kweon
1994 Computer Vision and Image Understanding  
We develop new definitions for those topographic features based on the contour map.  ...  We build a contour map from an elevation map and generate the connectivity tree of all regions separated by the contours.  ...  The contour tree represents the relationships among contour lines on a contour map. We call this contour tree representation a fopographic change free (TC tree).  ...

Feature-Driven Generalization of Isobaths on Nautical Charts: A Multi-Agent System Approach

Eric Guilbert
2015 Transactions on GIS  
A nautical chart provides a schematic view of the seafloor where isobaths (contour lines joining points of same depth) and depth soundings are generalised to highlight undersea features that form navigational  ...  The seafloor is not perceived as a continuous depth field but as a set of discrete features composed by groups of isobaths.  ...  A set of operators were defined at feature level and the generalisation process was coordinated by a multi-agent system.  ...

Topological Landscapes: A Terrain Metaphor for Scientific Data

Gunther Weber, Peer-Timo Bremer, Valerio Pascucci
2007 IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics  
The basic idea is to construct a terrain with the same topology as a given dataset and to display the terrain as an easily understood representation of the actual input data.  ...  In this projection from an n-dimensional scalar function to a two-dimensional (2D) model we preserve function values of critical points, the persistence (function span) of topological features, and one  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS We would like to thank Hamish Carr and Scott Dillard for making available the code used to compute contour trees and the branch decomposition and Peter Lindstrom for making available the  ...
