Traditionally, geomorphologists have performed analysis of topographic data in an ad-hoc manner using commercially available GIS packages such as ArcGIS. Although many of the tools within these packages are useful for academic research, they are effectively black boxes, due to the closed source nature of the software and are typically controlled through a GUI. Open source variants such as WhiteboxGAT and QGIS, which provide methodological transparency, exist but do not resolve the challenges in documenting and sharing scientific…
