Description

I create a Hillsade from Raster>Terrain analysis>Hillshade.
Using parameter Z-factor 10
Azimuth 315
Vertical angle 45
I get a grey/dull/flatten image
If I change the Z-factor to 1. I get the same result, just a bit lighter color.

Using the same function from Processing>GDAL I get a 'useful' image

Hi Lene, could you attach sample data to allow replicate here? thanks!

Lene,

Is your Z value in the same unit as your x and y. For example, this happens if you try to scale lat/long raster rasters.

#3 Updated by Lene Fischer over 3 years ago

Yes same value.
Utm 32 N EPSG 25832 for x,y and meter for Z-coordinate.
The files are to big to attach here. I try to upload to my webpage and insert a link here later.

I have the same issue for single files.

I guess this is sample data about the ticket for raster min/max values (#14835) and not this one, correct?

#6 Updated by Lene Fischer over 3 years ago

I use the same data for both tickets.

what is the file you used to hillshade and that gave you the results you attached as jpg in the original description?

#8 Updated by Lene Fischer over 3 years ago

From the the files in the link I made a VRT file.
You can also use just a single file.
