Abstract

The aim of this research is to explore the use of digital terrain model (DTM) for relief representation using different software's programming. DTM was acquired from terrestrial surveying using total station devise Topcon GTS-235N. Three computer software's were utilized for relief representation namely ( GIS, Surfer and AutoCAD Civil 3D Land). 2D and 3D relief representations were performed for the study area by using (GIS) techniques. Furthermore, a study of the application of the Surfer and AutoCAD Civil 3D Land software's for relief representation was investigated. The study area was located in Mosul north Iraq. The results demonstrated that the automated derivation of the spatial analysis and relief representation of the topography surface from digital data is faster, providing more reproducible applications for terrain representation. GIS techniques have gained a prominent role in relief representation than Surfer and AutoCAD Civil 3D Land software's.
