Shaded Relief

Up Catalog

FSAT C109

     Many maps of the French Southern and Antarctic Territories are, like these, monochrome shaded relief maps. This type of relief usually exaggerates elevation with respect to horizontal measurements so the vertical shape of the terrain is clearer. However, a shaded relief map does not provide specific information about elevation as a topographical map does. (Note the error in latitude on C109; it should be 4505'.)
