description: The color shaded relief service is a 100-meter resolution color-sliced elevation image of the United States, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, with relief shading added to accentuate terrain features. The image was produced by combining the 100-meter resolution color-sliced elevation and grayscale shaded relief datasets that are distributed from The National Map small-scale collection (, formerly called the National Atlas of the United States. Elevation data was derived from the 3D Elevation Program (3DEP), formerly called the National Elevation Dataset, and shows the terrain at a resolution of 100 meters. The 3DEP is a raster product assembled by the U.S. Geological Survey, designed to provide national elevation data in a seamless form with a consistent datum, elevation unit, and projection. Data corrections made in the 3DEP assembly process minimize artifacts, permit edge matching, and fill sliver areas of missing data. More information on 3DEP can be found at
