You are here: Rasters > RasterSlopeCalculator


Calculates the slope (maximum rate of change in z) for each cell of a raster.

Each selected input band will be converted to a Real64 band whose output value represents the slope.

Note that the horizontal and vertical units are expected to be equal. If this is not the case, the Scaler may be used prior to this transformer to apply an appropriate scale factor.
