1. Compute topographic index using r.topidx.

def run_slope(scanned_elev, env, **kwargs):
    gscript.run_command('r.topidx', input=scanned_elev, output='topidx', env=env)

2. Compute topographic aspect (slope orientation) using r.slope.aspect and reclassify it into 8 main directions.

3. Show areas with concave profile and tangential curvature (concave forms have negative curvature).

4. Derive peaks using either r.geomorphon or r.param.scale and convert them to points (using and From each of those points compute visibility with observer height of your choice a derive a cumulative viewshed layer where the value of each cell represents the number of peaks the cell is visible from (use r.series).

5. Find a least cost path between 2 points (for example from x=638360, y=220030 to x=638888, y=220388) where cost is defined as topographic index (trying avoid areas). Use r.topidx.

6. Compute erosion with spatially variable landcover and soil erodibility (use rasters cfactorbare_1m and soils_Kfactor from the provided dataset). Reclassify the result into 7 classes based on severity of erosion and deposition:
