Özet

Terrain as a continuum can be categorized into landform units that exhibit common physical and morphological characteristics of land surface which may serve as a boundary condition for a wide range of application domains. However, heterogeneous views, definitions, and applications on landforms yield incompatible nomenclature that lacks interoperability. Yet, there is still room for developing methods for classification of land surface into landforms that can provide different disciplines with a basis of landscape description that is also commonsense to human insight.
