Hillshade (elevation in feet)

Summary:

Hillshade is a raster image that portrays a grayscale 3D representation of the surface, with the sun's relative position taken into account for shading the image. This base layer can be combined with other basemaps (roads, topo, aerials) to provide a 3D like appearance. Data sources vary by county and range in date (2002-present) and resolution of pixels (2-10 ft); as of January 2019, data is not available for a few counties. For more information on this service see: DW_Elevation/EN_Hillshade_from_LiDAR
