Abstract:Manual airbrushed hill shading has often been viewed as a rather crude and ineffective way of portraying relief relying to a large extent on the ability of the cartographer to visualize the landscape whilst having the dexterity to handle a seemingly uncontrollable spraying machine. This paper discusses the benefits and disadvantages of the manual process, the impact digital technology has had on it, and briefly reviews tools and equipment used in relief map production.
