Glacier National Park

Initially, I started this project in an attempt to recreate a hillshade in the style of Edward Imhof using QGIS. John Nelson wrote a post about creating this style using Arc Pro: here. For this I collected ASTER Global DEM 1 Arc Second tiles and created a mosaic. Then I created three different layers: One using multi directional hillshading, one with traditional hillshading, and another gray lightened layer. The gray layer was used to recreate Imhof’s “Mist” effect. I decided to use the same techniques in an interesting place and make a map out of it. The above is the final result.
