Abstract : This study focused on developing a fractal dimension estimator which will be accurate over the limited range of fractal dimensions characteristic of the earth's natural relief. The estimator presented will have the advantage of reduced complexity and processing over the more optimal techniques. Local window estimates will be investigated as well as synthetic fractal surfaces produced from two different synthesis techniques. (AN)
