Shaded relief images were created from the GLD100 by illuminating the surface from a given Sun direction and elevation above the horizon. To convey an absolute sense of height, the resulting shaded relief grayscale pixels were painted with colors that represent the elevation (relative to the mean lunar radius). The Color Shaded Relief map is available at 128 ppd in the same tiled format as the GLD100 as well as global files at lesser resolutions. All of the Color Shaded Relief products are available with and without latitude and longitude grids (10° increments).
