The slope shading was originally built with backcountry skiing in mind, but it's also seen a lot of interest for summertime route planning, and I'd like to find a single color scheme that can accomodate both users. After a lot of fiddling, I have two prototypes that I'm seeking comment on.
Both use a similar color scheme, but one has a smooth gradient (v1) while the other has fixed steps (v2).
|Version 1, Avalanche Gulch|
|Version 2, Avalanche Gulch|
|Version 1, Shastarama|
|Version 2, Shastarama|
Right now I'm leaning towards producing both of these versions as map layers, so the question isn't really which one you prefer. Rather, it's how can I improve them? Should v2 have more colors, especially in the 0-27 or 35-45 ranges? Should I pick different colors? Highlight different slope ranges?
