Hello,

I was just wondering what are some of the methods that people use in ArcMap to remove these linear artifacts from a DEM so they don't show up in my Hillshade. The data are from USGS NED 10m.

I have ran several low pass filters, and this reduces the effect but does not get rid of the artifacts completely. Focal Statistics works well, but it really washes out/softens the Hillshade.

Any help on how to get rid of these or how to avoid the occurrence of them would be appreciated.

Are you sure those artifacts are from the DEM? Have you projected the DEM prior to making the hillshade? I've seen the exact same thing when I've made a hillshade from a projected a DEM without changing the sampling technique to "bilinear." If this sounds possible, look here:

Hey Borga,

I'll bet you are right. I am 95% sure that it is projected, I'm pretty sure that I did that after I concatenated the tiles. When working with rasters should I always stay in GCS?

Thanks a lot,
