Hi....question, when you use your DEM to create a slope raster, whats the highest possible value you can get if the slope is done in:
1. Degree - I get up to 70 degree as the highest which seems ok but its the percent i'm interestd in
2. Percent - FOR THIS I GET A VALUE OF ALMOST 300...is this possible? Isnt the highest 60? Plus the highest point in my country is just 2.2 km tall....would there be slopes over 60%. Why are my values like this?
