I'm new to cartography, and I'm trying to create a shaded relief map in Photoshop from data I downloaded from USGS and I have some questions. Can someone please point me to the right forum? I'm sure my question has been asked and answered before.

Thanks

Were currently discussing that on this thread: http://www.cartotalk...wtopic=3063&hl=

"There is much beauty that we fail to see through our own eyes teeming with life forms that give us that perception of our reality.  Leaves on the trees blowing gently in the wind, or scarily, the waves pounding through high surf, or lightly on a warm summer’s day; that opportunity to sit or swim in the water on a white beach.   That comfort to shout, “The universal conscious do you hear me?  I am alive, guide me dear logos towards the path of rightnesses.”  Earned what has been kept, no longer to be absorbed into a life filled with cold damn winds and  that stubborn fog clouding  my vision with nothing but darkness."

For doing it in Photoshop - I find Alex Tait's tutorial here the best resource:
International mapping goodies - Photoshop Shaded Relief Tutorial

Thanks for the info, I took a look at those sources, but they don't quite address the specific issue I'm having. I'll try posting a more specific question in the GIS forum.

Thanks again.
