Corrigendum : Aerial map demonstrates erosional patterns and changing topography at Isimila, Tanzania



[Original article] Bergstrom K, Lawrence AB, Pelissero AJ, Hammond LJ, Maro E, Bunn HT, Musiba CM. Aerial map demonstrates erosional patterns and changing topography at Isimila, Tanzania. S Afr J Sci. 2019;115(7/8), Art. #5911.

Due to an error in the reference plane, the elevation range shown for the digital elevation model (DEM) in Figure 5a (Page 3) is incorrect. The correct elevation range is 1629.41-1679.64 m. The DEM and orthomosaic map data were reprocessed using Agisoft Metashape 1.7.4. Processing parameters for the corrected DEM and orthomosaic differ slightly from those in Supplementary table 1 as a result of correcting the reference plane and differences in technical specifications of the computers used to process data. The corrected DEM, orthomosaic, and processing parameters are available for download at: The corrected Figure 5 and Supplementary table 1 appear below. The error does not affect the interpretation of data in the original article.

We thank Rebecca Bateman and Richard Bates for bringing the error to our attention and for sharing their data, as well as Pastory Bushozi and Philbert Katto for sharing their field data.
