A photogrammetric digital elevation model of the Bødalen valley saw-tooth moraine complex, western Norway


Fredin, O; Burki, V (2008). A photogrammetric digital elevation model of the Bødalen valley saw-tooth moraine complex, western Norway. Journal of Maps, 2008:63-70.

Abstract

Thorough geomorphological and geophysical investigations rely on high quality digital elevation models (DEM). Many areas in the developed world are covered by DEMs through national ordnance surveys or similar organizations. However, these DEMs are often of quite low resolution and do not allow detailed geomorphological investigations. One way to overcome this problem is to photogrammetically generate a bespoke DEM based on aerial photographs and ground control points. The glacier foreland of the Bødalsbreen glacier, emanating from the Jostedalsbreen icefield in western Norway, is characterized by a set of distinct and morphologically interesting moraine ridges. Existing topographic data of the valley was not of su

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
