Aroj Subedi; Pradip Ganesh; Sandip Mishra

Articles in Press, Accepted Manuscript, Available Online from 16 December 2020

Abstract
  Contour map has contour lines that are significant in building a Digital Elevation Model (DEM). During the digitization and pre-processing of contour maps, the contour line intersects with each other or break apart resulting in broken contour segments. These broken segments impose a greater risk while ...  Read More
