Export Resolution in Draw.io

Last winter I briefly highlighted Draw.io, a free flow charting tool comparable to Microsoft Visio (see that intro here). I use Draw.io pretty frequently, but I still haven't written more detailed how-tos for Spatially Challenged. The interface is pretty user-friendly, so I didn't think there was much worth a step-by-step article. Today is the first… Continue reading Export Resolution in Draw.io

Geographically Weighted Regression in SAGA

Since I mentioned kernels last week, I figured this would be a good time to go over the geographically weighted regression (GWR) procedure in SAGA. Once again, I don't have good example data I can post online for this topic, so you'll have to forgive the lack of pictures. GWR is an interesting method with… Continue reading Geographically Weighted Regression in SAGA

Types of Curvature

Curvature, the second derivative of elevation, is a very useful terrain derivative. It describes how convex or concave a surface is, which helps predict soil moisture (among other things). The basic terrain analysis feature in SAGA calculates plan curvature and profile curvature. Profile curvature goes with the direction of maximum slope, which helps estimate acceleration… Continue reading Types of Curvature
