  • LandSerf is a freely available Geographical Information System (GIS) for the visualisation and analysis of surfaces.
  • 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.
  • The Relief Shading website is intended to give cartographers, map enthusiasts, and students in-depth information about shaded relief.
  • Natural-color maps are some of the most admired physical maps. The combination of land cover colors and shaded relief brings to the printed map a colorized portrait of the landscape that closely approximates what people see in the natural world
