Abstract or Description
Downeast Maine contains a variety of different types of conservation lands with different ownership, size, and proximity to population centers. The map displays elevation data for the Downeast region as a hillshade.
Source Data Note
All data were obtained from the Maine Office of GIS clipped to the extent of the counties. Elevation is visually represented as hill shade, a command run in ArcGIS in which aerial photographs are used to project a three-dimensional appearance.
This map was made for the Atlas of Maine: Downeast Edition, Spring, 2011, using ESRI ArcGIS 9 software.
