Been a while since I posted on here, was fun reading all the good content that I had missed.
I see there are a few posts recently relating to Shaded Relief, Hillshading etc, but I feel my question is slightly different. I am not looking to do any tinting, or displaying elevation bands but I am looking to overlay a crude land type classification like in the topo shown in the link below.
What I like about the topo is that the non veg/tree covered areas are just shown as white, but you can still see the terrain shading in the white areas and the white is still vibrant! How did they achieve this?
I'm using QGIS but have access to Photoshop if needed. Just for background my current technique has been to create three hillshades (azimuth 315, 15, 270) and combine them with vary transparency. I then apply my white non veg/tree areas ontop of this but I get a washed out dull white
Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
