Hi all,

I am working on data which consists of many mound features > 50 m high and average 200 m diameter. Some are rounded and others are elongate.

The edges of the mounds are difficult to see on a shaded relief image, impeding the ability to place accurate zone boundaries around  the mounds. Thus, using the measurement tool in ArcMap to find diameter is not a solution. Also, I would like to utilize an automated mound detection method.

Does anyone have a method for detecting mound boundaries?

Thank you,
