Cartographic Techniques for Mapping Mountains Using Terrain Tools

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

There are a number of techniques which cartographers use to give terrain, such as mountain ranges, a three-dimensional effect on a two-dimensional map. This presentation will highlight a number of these techniques that can be implemented with Terrain Tools, an Esri toolbox of geoprocessing tools. Some of these techniques, such as illuminated contours, recreate historical cartographic methods. Others, such as sky models, are advanced methods of hill-shading that precisely accounts for the distribution of light across the visible sky. Come see this presentation if you are interested in taking your terrain maps to a new level!
