I am designing a map for a local trailhead kiosk that will show users where they are in relation to landmarks, others trails, hydro etc. The scale of this map is about 1:15,000
I am working to generate some forests using DEMs and Photoshop. I've been playing around with this today and am generally happy with the results I've produced (attached gen.JPG).
I am a little unhappy with the way the higher elevation area are smooth. These mountains are quite craggy and it would be cool to generate a representative texture for the alpine areas. You can see the attached aerial.JPG which covers the same extent as my generated forest+hillshade image.
Does anyone have any suggestions or examples for creating a good texture to use for these alpine areas?
Any other general thoughts on what I have created so far?
thanks in advance,
