Terrain

Terrain

Contour Gap Fix (Contour Gaps)
Checks if contours have gaps, and bridges them if so
Contour Planarity Fix (Contour Planarity)
Checks contours are planar and corrects them if not
Contour Clipper (Contour Clip)
Checks contours meet a specific boundary, otherwise extend/trim them
Mesh Aspect (Aspect)
Analyses the aspect of a Mesh, outputting separated faces for coloring and the aspect
Mesh Slope (Slope)
Analyses the slope of a Mesh, outputting separated faces for coloring and the slope/grade
Surface Aspect (Aspect)
Analyses the aspect of a Surface, outputting separated faces for coloring and the aspect
Surface Slope (Slope)
Analyses the slope of a Surface, outputting separated faces for coloring and the slope/grade

Hydro

Flow Catchments (Catchments)
Identify the catchments within a set of flow paths
Channel Info (CInfo)
Calculate characteristics of water flow in a channel from its submerged region
Channel Region (CRegion)
Determine the submerged region of a channel given a quantity of water
River Flood Levels (River Floods)
Examine flooding levels along a surface from a river source
Flow Saturation (Saturation)
Identify the saturation levels across terrain given flow paths
Sea Flood Levels (Sea Floods)
Examine flooding levels along a surface from a tidal source

Groundhog

Flow Projection (Mesh) (Mesh Flows)
Construct flow paths over a mesh
Flow Projection (Surface) (Srf Flows)
Construct flow paths over a surface
Plant Appearance (canopy mesh) (Shower (canopy mesh))
Simulate the appearance of a particular plant instance's canopy using a mesh between canopy and trunk
Plant Appearance (discs) (Shower (discs))
Simulate the appearance of a particular plant instance using circles
Plant Appearance (root mesh) (Shower (root mesh))
Simulate the appearance of a particular plant instance's root using a mesh between canopy and trunk

Mapping

Field Mapper (Field)
Create a field representation from collections of bounded curves/lines.
Field Visualisation (Grid) (Field Grid)
Translate a field into a grid based visualisation. Outputs a number constrained by a range which can be used to then make a color or shape.
Random Path (RandPath)
Calculates a random path (in 2 dimensions)
Shortest Path (ShortPath)
Calculates the shortest path in a network of curves

Flora

Generic Species (PGeneric)
Output plant objects from pre-defined generic types
Species Importer (PImport)
Create plant attributes from an imported spreadsheet
