Swiss-Style Colour Relief Shading Modulated by Elevation and by Exposure to Illumination

The winning article appeared in volume 43 issue 3 and is titled 'Swiss-Style Colour Relief Shading Modulated by Elevation and by Exposure to Illumination' by Bernhard Jenny and Lorenz Hurni.

The first part of the paper illustrates the graphical and technical developments of the past, leading to Swiss-style coloured relief shading, and the second part presents a new computer based method for colouring grey-shaded relief inspired by classic colour schemes.
