My first AP Shaded Relief [WORK IN PROGRESS]

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

This is a Digital Shaded Relief of the area where I currently live (Lazio-Abruzzo border, Italy) made with AP and Arcgis Desktop.

Next steps:

- Remove arctifacts

- Add roads, rivers, lakes, land cover, contours ecc...

- Map lettering

- Layout

It already looks very impressive viewed full size. This must have taken some time to create?

Thanks :) Yes it takes some time, about 2-3 hours... but Labeling the Map takes more.

This is interesting, and something I haven't seen before on the forum. I thought it would have taken much longer to achieve the result you already have.

The colouring is intriguing. I meant to ask you: how did you choose the colouring and apply it? Is it purely hypsometric? (As some valleys don't appear to be so).

I didn't used an hypometric palette. I took Edward imhof's work and his color palette (blues, greens, and yellows) as reference. Eduard imhof was a Swiss master cartographer and developed a unique style to enhance terrain representation. The basic principle is to produce several masked layers (one for shadows, one for plain areas, on for peaks, ecc...) and then stack them together.  So for example I extracted shadows from the basemap and colored it with a violet tone (with a multiply blend for example), then I extracted the illuminated areas and colored it with a yellow tone...  

Is not easy to achieve imhof's results...So I need to improve the choise of colors and the use of masks (since I'm a newbie Affinity user). I will continue to work on this project and  this will takes more than 2 hours.

 And when I will finish, I will post the workflow in the tutorial section.
