Hillshades from vector contours

Question asked by IainS on Jul 20, 2015

I am sure this must be obvious but I have some contours which are vectors in shapefile format. I want to turn them into a map with hillshades so that the nature of the slope/elevation is easily understood. Is is correct that I have to turn the vector contours into raster and then into a DEM then drape the DEM with the contours to achieve this?

 

Is there a workflow outlined somewhere that I can follow? Maybe even a video?

 

Thanks Iain
