r.topidx: Creates topographic index [ln(a/tan(beta))] map from elevation map.


r.topidx - Creates topographic index [ln(a/tan(beta))] map from elevation map.
r.topidx r.topidx help r.topidx input=name output=name [--overwrite] [--verbose] [--quiet] Flags: --overwrite Allow output files to overwrite existing files --verbose Verbose module output --quiet Quiet module output Parameters: input=name Input elevation map output=name Output topographic index map


r.topidx creates topographic index (wetness index), ln(a/tan(beta)), map from elevation map where a: the area of the hillslope per unit contour length that drains through any point, tan(beta): the local surface topographic slope (delta vertical) / (delta horizontal). Input maps may have NULL values. For example, if you have a MASK for a watershed (basin map from r.water.outlet), the following command will create a masked elevation map (belev): r.mapcalc "belev = if(isnull(basin), basin, elev)" r.stats -Anc prints out averaged statistics for topographic index.
