The topographic profile on our cycle map looks like a wedge-shaped doorstop, on whose incline we can slide right down to Kelheim.
LRO's topographic profile reveals that Moltke is about 0.
It is possible to create a more pictorial representation of the landscape by making a topographic profile of the region.
While it is common to use a Gaussian function to model the topographic profile of a rough surface, with the width of the Gaussian distribution being proportional to the RMS of the surface, (18) we are not aware of any special theoretical reason why a Gaussian fit would be the most appropriate in this case, where the scattered intensity is being modeled.
A survey was conducted across Les Sillons to produce a cross-sectional topographic profile (Figure 4).
It is necessary to reconstruct the landscape as closely as possible to its historic topographic profile," NPCA Northeast Regional Director Eileen Woodford wrote to Gettysburg Superintendent John A.
This mechanism allows the use of existing thin-film metrology equipment, such as spectroscopic ellipsometers, to accurately extract topographic profile information from one-dimensional (1-D) periodic structures.
LSCM images presented in this article were in 2D intensity projection or 3D topographic profile and they were representative of a series of overlapping optical slices (a stack of z-scan images) with each z-step measuring 0.
By the defined points, a table with the obtained data is create (latitude, longitude, highest mesh altitude) and in the Surfer[R] software, these values are interpolated generating isolines (contour lines) and allowing to generate digital terrain elevation models (DEMs) and topographic profiles.
The topographic profiles were created along different landforms: plateaus, glacial cirques and valleys.
Two topographic profiles collected over flight line 2 [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 1 OMITTED] are used to illustrate the use of the laser altimeter for measuring long topographic profiles [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 2 OMITTED].
They used high-resolution topographic profiles generated by the laser altimeter onboard the Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) orbiter to compute the volume, height, and shape of the cratered cone.
