The relief generation program Vimage

Vimage Wuhan edition page

Vimage is a program, with which marvelous cartographic terrain representations in outstanding quality can be produced.

Oblique hill shading, vertical hill shading, combined hill shading, contour lines and elevation layers - there is no common terrain representation, which could not be manufactured with Vimage. There are also routines, which can manufacture colored hill shadings and set contour line numbers perfectly.

The Shuttle Radar Topography Mission SRTM measured the earth in the period of the 11th until the 22nd February 2000 in a completeness and an accuracy not known ever. With the data won thereby relief representations can be produced, about which Sydow, Hammer, Habenicht, Peucker, Penck, Eckert, Imhof, Arnberger, Brandstätter, Peuckert - generations of geographers, geodesists and cartographers - could only dream.
