Aspect identifies the downslope direction of the maximum rate of change in value from each cell to its neighbors. Aspect can be thought of as the slope direction. The values of the output raster will be the compass direction of the aspect.
The Aspect function is often applied to a digital elevation model (DEM).
The aspect dataset appears as a grayscale image. The default data type is 16 Bit Unsigned (Short Integer).
You can add the Colormap function to display the dataset using the color map renderer or a specified color ramp.
