how to simplify small scale complex terrain map like the attached pic? the attached pic is from NPS ,with the elegant color and obvious ridge,I tried my best ,but get frustrating result.

Mapping Center Answer:

As far as I know, there is no way to simplify a hillshade image (gracefully). The typical workflow would be to simplify the elevation dataset that was used to produce the hillshade, and then produce a new hillshade.
