Digital Elevation Model processing

November 12, 2021 from 1:30 pm to 2:00 pm

Speaker: Erik-Jan Blanksma

Digital Elevation Models (DEM) are widely and freely available. This talk will focus on how to process this type of data to make it useful for agricultural purposes. Specifically we’ll explore how to calculate where shadows are casts, and where rain water will accumulate and drain from the field.
