Hello. I am attempting to create a visually appealing thematic map of an arctic zone, which consists of both land and water based features. I would like to make the land features pop-out (not necessarily stand out from other features, but appear to be hovering as seen when using Google maps). I do not have elevation data, so this would, I believe, need to be done without the use of DEM's. This would be a strictly visual feature and hold no true spatial reference to the real world. In Google maps it appears the land pops-out from the water features with either a shadowing effect or some other. Thank you in advance.
