for World Wind provides attractive and
informative topographic/bathymetric maps that can be used alone or in combination with other
layers. These are high resolution (~1 km resolution) maps in a variety of color schemes.
is specifically designed to accentuate
the subtle elevation changes that occur at lower altitudes. Structural features such as river
valleys and drainage basins are more readily visible than with most color schemes.

pleasing naturalistic colors. In this layer, a greater emphasis has been placed on the brown
portion of the color range.
utilizes a rainbow palette to display topographic
information. This is similar to the color-coded elevation maps commonly used. Colors were
selected to provide sensitivity to altitude without the harsh contrasts typical of such maps.
resembles the weathered maps of previous centuries. This
non-traditional color scheme evokes the style of antique maps while retaining accurate
color-elevation information and precision.
is a grayscale map that is particularly useful when used in
combination with other, colored layers. It conveys the location, orientation and altitude
information of shaded relief without detracting from the color information of superimposed
