Greater Bay Area - Elevation Tints

The San Francisco Bay Area is widely regarded as one of the most scenically impressive urban areas in America. The distinctive combination of a very large estuary with steep ridges and deep valley makes for dramatic views, with abrupt topography producing landscapes ranging from rainforests to arid grasslands, all within a few tens of miles.

This is the classic Raven Wall Map. It uses shaded relief to portray the land and combines shading with elevation tints-- a sequence of delicate hues and colors that portrays landforms--much more clearly than the abstraction of contour lines. Elevation colors make mountains, highlands, and valleys immediately obvious.
