Caquard, S. (2014) ‘Cartography II: Collective cartographies in the social media era’, Progress in Human Geography, 38 (1): 141–50.

This paper looks at the ways to mobilize the citizenry to create maps and digital data, which can serve as the inputs for terrain analysis. Perhaps typical for human geographers, this is a thought piece with no figures.

Gillespie, T.W., Willis, K.S., and Ostermann-Kelm, S. (2015) ‘Spaceborne remote sensing of the world’s protected areas’, Progress in Physical Geography, 39 (3): 388–404.

This paper surveys the current satellites, which provide a critical input data for digital terrain analysis. The focus is on their use for protected areas, but the principles apply to any regions.

Roche, S. (2014) ‘Geographic Information Science I: Why does a smart city need to be spatially enabled?’, Progress in Human Geography, 38 (5): 703–11.
