Hillshading and Elevation Contours

Hillshade and Contour Map
An elevation map with contours at 600 foot intervals, with green representing 600 feet, yellow 1200 feet, orange 1800 feet, and red for 2400 feet and above.  The image below is a hillshaded relief map with the light source from azimuth 315, at an elevation of 35 degrees above the horizon, and a elevation Z-factor exaggergation of 2.

Interpolated Precipitation Data

Color Precipitation Map
A color shaded map using Krige Interpolation of point source rain gauge data of Oregon precipiation with contours overlaid.

Rainfall Legend

Rainfall Map over Hillshade
The same map as above overlaid onto a hillshade relief map with the light source from azimuth 315, at an elevation of 35 degrees above the horizon, and a elevation Z-factor exazergation of 2 and the transparency set to 50%.
