Colour Shaded Relief DEMs based on the NTS 1:250,000 map blocks.

A relief representation combining a Colour Relief image, in which the elevations are assigned different colours according to their value, and a Shaded Relief image, in which lighting enhances elevation and slope. The resulting product is a 3-band (RGB) raster image where colour intensity varies to provide a realistic terrain visualization. Useful for mapping at scales of 1:20,000 or smaller. Files are in BC Albers projection (EPSG 3005).
