DESCRIPTION

r.prominence calculates the average difference between a central cell and its neighbors. It approximated the terrain 'ruggedness' by looking at average differences in elev_lid792_1m within a given neighborhood The radius is specified in number of map rows/columns.

EXAMPLE

North Carolina sample region:
g.region raster=elev_lid792_1m

# get region rows/columns
g.region -g

# calculate prominence (radius of 50 map rows)
r.prominence input=elev_lid792_1m output=prominence radius=50

# visualize over shaded DEM
r.relief input=elev_lid792_1m output=elev_lid792_1m_shaded

d.mon wx0
d.shade shade=elev_lid792_1m_shaded color=prominence
