Measure Slope

Option when right-clicking after drawing topographic profile (line of sight).

Double click on the profile to select two points, and get the slope between them.  The accuracy will depend on:

  • The quality of the DEM.
  • The number of DEM points in the horizontal distance covered.
  • Whether the profile is perpendicular to the topography.  If not, you will have an apparent slope which will be less than the true value.
