DESCRIPTION

r.hypso produces the hypsometric and hypsographic curve related to a digital elevation model and prints the percentiles.

NOTES

The hypsographic curve gives the distribution of surfaces in different altitude ranges. Each point on the function reports on the y-axis the elevation and on the x-axis the portion of the basin surface placed above such elevation value. The hypsometric curve uses adimensional axes.

Flags:

-a: generates hypsometric curve

-b: generates hyposographic curve

EXAMPLE

r.hypso -b map=elevation image=/tmp/hypso
generates hypsographic curve, and
r.hypso -a map=elevation image=/tmp/hypso
generates hypsometric curve.
