Aspect refers to the orientation of the terrain slope, defined as the direction of the projection of the slope normal on the horizontal plane. Slope direction is of great importance for mountain ecology. The slope is an angle, which is measured clockwise with a range between 0 (north) and 360 (north as well). This function can analyze terrain aspect based on DEM and generates aspect map.
