Hello everyone,


I drew a generalized shaded relief of the 48 contiguous US states fitted to 1:10 million Natural Earth shorelines and rivers. The relief also covers southern Canada, Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean.


You can checkout this new product, released as part of Natural Earth, at the link below.

I feel like I keep repeating myself, but awesome work Tom! I wish I had the skills and the patience for something like that.

Wow, it's very nice to have a manual shaded relief that is well registered to a DEM.    They can be blended together to taste.  See especially Russia here...  http://icaci.org/map...e-month-112010/
