Coloring a hillshade as exactly same as ARCGISONLINE shaded relief map?
Can anyone tell me how to create exactly same hillshade effect with ESRI online hillshade Relief http://resources.esri.com/arcgisonlineservices/index.cfm?fa=content_detail&contentID=C3D03BD7-1422-2413-19440C238606F6EE
OR the base map of the ESRI street maps. http://resources.esri.com/arcgisonlineservices/index.cfm?fa=compare_street_maps
Mapping Center Answer:
The first one is in a style you can download from a blog entry we did some months ago on choosing color ramps for hillshades. It's the "warm gray" example.
But, that said, getting an exact match with a different hillshade raster is nearly impossible. The issue is how the values, ranging 0-255, are distributed in each hillshade dataset--and every hillshade dataset is different. To get a closer match, you can use the histogram tool to interactively adjust how the colors are applied across the distribution of values.
