USGS - science for a changing world


Version Date


Explanation: Using National Elevation Dataset (NED) information, U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) researchers can quickly depict elevation zones and various geomorphic features. Automated processes have been developed which allow such representations to be generated for large areas with a minimum of human labor and interaction required. This poster of New Mexico shows the surface expression color-shaded by the given elevation ranges and augmented by anaglyphic offsets to produce a three-dimensional perception. Selected map features and text enhance this base data. New Mexico is the fifth largest state in land area, and the fourth highest in average surface elevation. Upon inspection it is easy to determine why the state is called [...]
