An Improved Slope Classification Mapping Method


Article Preview

Slope classification map is the essential condition of land resource reasonable using. This article aims at solving problems in progresses of conventional slope classification map making methods. Providing an improving method which bases on ArcGIS to make slope classification map, and discussing the progresses of improving method in detail with cultivated land slope classification as a example. This method works with merge, aggregation, and elimination to improve the effect of the slope map. The result of the experiment proves the feasibility and effectiveness of this method.
