Hey All, 

I was looking for some advice on how to calculate topographic exposure (TOPEX) in ArcGIS.  Jamie Popkin posted a tutorial on how to perform the calculations using GRASS (http://jamiepopkin.blogspot.de/2011/01/calculating-togographic-exposure-with.html).  I am looking to calculated Distance Limited TOPEX for eight directions (10,60,90,140,190,240,270,320) with ArcGIS.  Any clues? 
Additionally, there is a script for ArcView3.2 available from http://faculty.forestry.ubc.ca/mitchell/downloads.htm.  I tried contacting Dr. Mitchell himself, but no response yet.  Any advice besides just doing it in grass is greatly appreciated! 

Best Regards,
Reed
