TauDEM algorithm provider

TauDEM (Terrain Analysis Using Digital Elevation Models) is a set of Digital Elevation Model (DEM) tools for the extraction and analysis of hydrologic information from topography as represented by a DEM. This is software developed at Utah State University (USU) for hydrologic digital elevation model analysis and watershed delineation.

TauDEM is distributed as a set of standalone command line executable programs for a Windows and source code for compiling and use on other systems.


Please remember that Processing contains only the interface description, so you need to install TauDEM 5.0.6 by yourself and configure Processing properly.
