We now have hill shading in all mid and small scale zoom levels of Digimap Roam. The shading helps show the shape of the land, giving you a much better idea of the steepness of the relief and the direction of slope.

Snowdonia Map with Hill ShadingThe shading is not switched on by default but you simply need to click on the Hill Shading Icon button above the map to switch it on or off.  There is also a check-box in the print interface if you want the shading on your printed maps.

We have created the Hill Shading using the Land-Form PANORAMA DTM data and we will soon be using the Land-Form PROFILE DTM data to create a similar effect on the more detailed large scale maps in Digimap Roam.
