The GIS and Mapping Section of La Rioja (Spain) has made a new shaded relief map based on LIDAR flight data from The National Aerial Orthophoto Plan in Spain (PNOA) 2010.
The relief was rendered using Collete Gantenbein (Idaho University) methodology. The use of multiple light sources achieves higher visual plasticity that facilitates the interpretation of the territory. In order to perform this work in a fully automated way, FME Desktop (Safe software, British Columbia) software was used.
A paper in spanish about this work was published in the Spanish Spatial Data Infrastructure blog.
Both the elevation data and relief images can be freely viewed and downloaded through our OGC services, from the IDErioja Geoviewer and from GitHub.
