Feature request #4012

Updated by Giovanni Manghi about 3 years ago

Testing something in Mapwindow GIS I noticed that it can do on-the-fly hillshading of single band rasters; in fact, this is even enabled by default when you add a new raster layer!

I don't think it makes sense to enable it by default, but I'm sure QGIS users would also appreciate hillshading as a symbology option (rather than having to create a second raster file for the hillshading). Mapwindow has demonstrated that this is possible, and can be plenty fast enough ;)
