Topographic Renderings

The terrain is an essential part in understanding a place, which is why most of my maps come with a topographical background.

Contour lines with meters are a very limited in creating a visual idea of the terrain. Therefore I depict the topography graphically. I use light and shadow to achieve plasticity. Using different shades of gray and color, the user understands the height relations at a glance.

I use special, high-resolution satellite images to reproduce the topography, which is why my topographical representations are very detailed and never simplified or generalized.

While I maintain all local topographical details I apply a special kind of algorithm to visualize mountain ranges in an overview.
