Shaded Relief

Shaded Relief

Tom Patterson, at the US National Park Service, has an excellent site full of great articles, links, software, and other resources focusing on map presentation, with an emphasis on relief.
The goal of this site is to assist practicing cartographers with the presentation of shaded relief and related raster art on maps. I developed the techniques to support my work as a cartographer for the US National Park Service, Harpers Ferry Center. Attractively presented shaded relief has long been a hallmark of Park Service maps—a tradition that I attempt to continue.
