Here is a screen resolution background for the 1:63k side of a new Wind River Range map I'm currently working on. The backside will have a 1:24k detailed map of Gannett Peak itself. It incorporates an NDVI continuous surface combined with a canopy cover dataset to color the shaded relief. Details on these techniques and the rationale for using them are detailed in a paper presented at the ICA Mtn Cart Workshop and can be found here:

Wow, This is a great read. I love the images at the end. Maybe some day I can be half as good as you. Maybe.

Thanks Martin!

It's nice to see both the thought and data elements used for this beautiful cartography - not to mention a piece of work presented for those who missed the ICA conference.
