Interesting and Absurd Uses of Digital Elevation Models

At the 2017 Esri User Conference, Ken Field will dazzle you with an array of beautiful techniques and examples of Relief Representation. I’ll be there, too, as the peanut gallery, tossing in strange, maybe useful, sometimes ridiculous, examples of Digital Elevation Model hacks. These may or may not include…

Bumpified Imagery


Fake Plastic Maps


Misty Mountains


Hacking a Sunrise




Hypothetical Depths



Come join us! Free high-fives from Ken for the first 10 attendees.

Hope to see you there. John

    These are so cool! Thanks for sharing! I was wondering, is there a walkthrough for the painterliness effect too? Thanks!
