Landscape Position Continued– absolutely relative position calculation

Landscape position, e.g. previous posts, can be trivial to calculate, but to make the calculations scalable to a large area, some batching is necessary. In this case, instead of a McNab index, we’re calculating the traditional GIS landscape position. Enter my favorite non-geographic tool, PovRay… . To the difference between, … Continue reading Landscape Position Continued– absolutely relative position calculation
