Geomorphometry concerns the quantitative analysis of land surface, mostly modeled as digital elevation models. Geomofometrical techniques allow derivation morphometric variables (slope, slope orientation, curvatures etc.) and extraction of geomorphological objects (networks of valleys, drainage basins, or landforms).
With a fundamental contribution to the development of quantitative geomorphology, geomorphometry is increasingly practiced in Romania: from standard applications to methodological contributions to the development of classification systems and digital mapping of landforms. A feature of geomorphometry in Romania is given by scientific contributions to the classification of landforms using object oriented analysis. Geomorphometry techniques were applied in Romania for digital mapping of soils, archaeological sites predicting, susceptibility to various phenomena and assessing risks.
