Abstract: r.mblend is an implementation of the MBlend method for merging Digital Elevation Models (DEMs). This method produces smooth transitions between contiguous DEMs of different spatial resolution, for instance, when acquired by different sensors. r.mblend is coded on the Python API provided by the Geographic Resources Analysis Support System (GRASS), being fully integrated in that GIS software. It introduces improvements to the original method and provides the user with various parameters to fine tune the merging procedure. This article showcases the main differences between r.mblend and two conventional DEM merge methods: Cover and Average.
