TOM PATTERSON

Tom Patterson

Tom Patterson is employed by the U.S. National Park Service. He maintains the very informative "Shaded Relief Homepage", a website with "ideas and techniques for presenting 2D and 3D topography on maps".

The two maps below are examples of a new technique for coloring shaded relief proposed by Tom Patterson. They feature shaded relief combined with information extracted from aerial photographs using Photoshop.
