Hillshaded Digital Elevation Model

Module by: John Janovec. E-mail the author

Summary: A hillshaded digital elevation model of the los amigos conservation area.

Figure 1: The DEM was used to generate a hill-shaded scene of the Los Amigos Conservation Area, pictured here. Rivers: (1) Madre de Dios. (2) Los Amigos River. (3) Amiguillos River. The change in elevation is not drastic, ranging from about 240 m in the Madre de Dios basin to about 350 m in the upper Amigos and Amiguillos watersheds. Both the DEM and our understanding of variation in elevation across the landscape deserve further investigation and ground-truthing. Los Amigos Botany is planning to do this during the next field season in January to February along with preliminary investigations on biotic and abiotic landscape-scale patterns of the Los Amigos landscape.

Definition of a lens


A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

What are tags? tag icon

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.
