A GIS raster layer of aspects created from the DEM also provided here. Like the slope layer, it was created by reducing the resolution of the DEM from cells 10 m by 10 m to cells 100 m by 100 m. Slopes and aspects were calculated from this lower resolution image in order to generalize more broadly. The result was then resampled back to a resolution of cells 10 m by 10 m to match the other layers for analysis. The layer is provided in Idrisi (ASPECT-IDRISI.ZIP) and GeoTIFF (ASPECT-GEOTIFF.ZIP) formats. Cell values are as follows:
