Automated small-scale relief shading: a new method and software application


Leonowicz, A M; Jenny, B (2010). Automated small-scale relief shading: a new method and software application. In: 7th ICA Mountain Cartography Workshop - Mountain Mapping and Geospatial Information Retrieval, Borsa, Romania, 1 September 2010 - 5 September 2010, 90-95.

Abstract

Shaded relief derived from high-resolution terrain models often contains distracting terrain details that need to be removed for medium and small scale mapping. This paper introduces Terrain Sculptor, a software application that prepares generalized terrain models for relief shading. The application uses a generalization methodology based on a succession of raster operations. Terrain Sculptor offers a graphical user interface to adjust the algorithm to various scales and terrain resolutions.
