Abstract : Two morphometric classification systems were examined: the Quantitative Terrain Data system and the Characteristic Plan-Profile system, and modifications were made in their methodology so that the terrain parameters required by the systems could be obtained using air-photo interpretation methods. The applicability of the two systems, as modified, was tested in the Laurentian area of eastern Canada with reference to sample areas in three different rock types. (Modified author abstract)
