TopoToolbox provides a set of Matlab functions that support the analysis of relief and flow pathways in digital elevation models. The major aim of TopoToolbox is to offer stable and efficient analytical GIS utilities in a non-GIS environment in order to support the simultaneous application of GIS-specific and other quantitative methods.
TopoToolbox' algorithms are largely based on sparse matrix algebra and image processing techniques. Each function is implemented in Matlab-code (*.m-files) and can be easily modified and adapted to specific needs of the user.
TopoToolbox can be regarded as a construction kit and new functions will be added in the future.
