Right after a basic WorkFlowDiagram invented for finishing maps with a NON GIS (graphic) software comes another interesting subject - i.e. Hill Shading.

I'm interesting how others deal with this subject. Perhaps we could learn more one from another. PLS share Yours concepts.
You can find my own WorkFlowDiagram right here
