Wadiscape Generator


Martin Köchy
Verbal description of what the code does:
generation of a neutral (fractal) wadi landscape with specified slope angles, calculation of accumulated flow
Type (function, class, unit, form, ...):
classes to create the wadiscape and sample application
Flow chart (for complex code):
Expected input (type and range of values, units):
parameters for the fractal surface: Hurst factor, sigma, slope angle
Output (type and range of values, units):
a tab separated table with three columns: row, column, habitat code, elevation, flow accumulation
Requirements and environment (libraries, headers, QT, Borland Builder):
random number generator r250 (included), STL

GIS algorithms
when there are patches with the same elevation, the program is caught in an infinite loop
