Hillshading less visible on higher zoom levels

Not a Problem

When zooming in with hillshading=on, the contrast of hillshading is less than on lower zoom levels (decreasing with zzoming). Because of this, sometimes hard to find exactly the bottom of a valley, or the ridge/summit of a hill.

On zoom level 17 hillshading totally disappears.

In fact, I think it would be better to see a higher contrast in higher zoom levels, because it is more important to see the smaller differences in the altitudes of the terrain.


Thanks

Hi,

unfortunately from my opinion it does not make sense and there also technical limits. Hillshading is tool how to obtain some overview/context about terrain. It shouldn't be used for detailed differences. Hillshading in Locus is created from SRTM data that have accuracy about 2-5 metters. So it's little bit tricky to create hillshading for higher zoom-levels.

I'm not totally agree with this, but I accept it.

Anyway, thank you for your fast answer!
