curvature returns the second numerical derivative (curvature) of a digital elevation model/surface. It distinguishes between profile and planform curvature. Profile curvature is the 2nd derivative along the steepest downward gradient. Planform curvature is the 2nd derivative perpendicular to the downward gradient.
