Terrain Map View
This tool allows one to create different terrain visualisations from an elevation dataset:* Topography: a simple map with an analytical hillshading of the terrain* Morphology: a map which visualizes the terrain by combining positive and negative openness (Yokoyama et al. 2002) with terrain slope in a single map. In contrast to conventional shading methods this has the advantage of being independent from the direction of the light source.References:Yokoyama, R. / Shirasawa, M. / Pike, R.J.
