Working with DEM's

I am currently working on a project where it would be beneficial to be able to figure out slopes. Some where in ESRI I thought I read that it is possible to use DEM's to do this task. Is there a way you can do this?

Mapping Center Answer:

The short answer is yes, though you will need either the Spatial Analyst or the 3D Analyst extensions.  The tool is called slope.  One topic in the online help discusses the options, and the Slope Tool help tells how (to see information about the specific methods click on more about how Slope works at the top).
