Elevation Histograms
There are several ways to get histograms:
For slope histograms, Create derivative grid for slope, and then treat that like elevation and use these options.
Elevation-slope plot: calculates statistics and displays a number of different graphs.
Single DEM, or all those open Pick the graphs desired, and whether you want summary text statistics.
Entire DEMs, or just the current map area Bin size: |
Regular histogram: plots elevation against percentage of area. | |
Cumulative elevation distribution: plots elevation against percentage of area at that elevation or lower. This uses an arithmetic vertical axis. | |
Cumulative elevation distribution: plots elevation against percentage of area at that elevation or lower, on a probability axis. This spreads out the tails of the distribution. | |
Cumulative Strahler curve: hypsometric integral or hypsometric curve(Strahler, 1952). Graphs proportion of total height on the y-axis, and proportion of total area on the x-axis, with both ranging from 0.0 to 1.0. |
These all show the same DEM.
