In this tutorial we're going to create a hypsometric curve. A hypsometric curve is a cumulative distribution function of elevations in a geographical area. It can be used to compare the geomorphology of catchments.
We're going to create a hypsometric curve for the Rur catchment using a tool from the Processing Toolbox and the DataPlotly plugin.
After this tutorial you're able to:
- Create a table with the cumulative distributions of elevations in a DEM
- Visualise the hypsometric curve with the DataPlotly plugin
