Aspect

VersionDescription

2.0

2 new parameters added:

  • method
  • z_unit

The method parameter allows you choose between the traditional planar method for performing the calculations, and the new geodesic method.

When using the geodesic option:

  • A new z_unit parameter is available, which allows you to specify the linear unit of the vertical z-values if it is not already defined in the coordinate system of the input.
  • If a suitable GPU device is available on your system, greater performance will come as a result of the calculations being GPU accelerated.

The behavior for how NoData cells and boundary cells are handled was changed. At least seven of the eight cells neighboring the processing cell must have a value, otherwise the output will be NoData. Cells in the outermost rows and columns of the output raster will be NoData.
