Service Description: The USGS Shaded Relief base map service from The National Map was created using data from the 3D Elevation Program (3DEP), which maintains a seamless dataset of best available raster elevation data for the conterminous United States, Alaska, Hawaii, and Territorial Islands of the U.S. Derived using a multi-light hillshade technique, this base map represents a continental view from medium to large scales (visible to 1:9,028) showing shaded relief from USGS elevation layers at resolutions of 1/3-, 1-, and 2-arc-second (in Alaska only). Shaded relief at small scales is a single-light hillshade created from GTOPO30 elevation data at 30 arc-second resolution. For additional information, go to and
