Cratermatic 'findcraters' Tutorial

This tutorial describes how to use the 'findcraters' command. To really understand what is going on, you should first go through the general Cratermatic tutorial. The following steps assume that you are in the directory containing the Cratermatic executable 'craters' and an elevation dataset 'elevation.txt'.

You could also have run the whole command sequence from the command line with './craters .elevation.txt l .Products findcraters'.

An alternative version of the command, 'findcratersP', takes seven numerical constants for the crater determination parameters k1 ... k7. The syntax is 'IMAGE OUTPUT_FOLDER k1 k2 k3 k4 k5 k6 k7 findcratersP', so, for example, to repeat the above command with the default parameter values, you would use './craters .elevation.txt l .Products 0.25 0.10 0.06 0.02 0.5 0.33 0.33 findcratersP'
