New article on surface depression published in IJGIS

My new peer-reviewed article titled “A localized contour tree method for deriving geometric and topological properties of complex surface depressions based on high-resolution topographical data”  has been published in the latest issue of International Journal of Geographical Information Science, Issue 12. You can download a free online copy using this link:  In this paper, we developed a localized contour tree method that is able to fully exploit high-resolution topographical data for detecting, delineating and characterizing surface depressions across scales with a multitude of geometric and topological properties. See some figures below:

  1. Hello Dr. Wu,

    I’d be interested in any ArcGIS toolbox or code that you may have developed to implement this method for finding closed depressions. Looks very promising!

    Thank you,
