I used the shaded relief function from the raster functions pane in ArcGIS Pro 2.8.3 and the result does not look like the elevation color ramp.
I've done this before, and it worked correctly (see left side in graphic). I repeated the process on that same DEM and a different DEM and now get the shaded relief shown on the right side of the graphic. I don't remember if the correct shaded relief was done in a different AGP version.
The DEM is projected and has statistics calculated.
I've tried the following, but nothing works to correct the result:
I'm not sure where to go from here with the troubleshooting. Any ideas?
If you have the spatial analyst or 3D analyst extensions, can you try
Hillshade (Spatial Analyst)—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation which will enable you to produce a shaded relief with your dem
Do you get predictable results with your datasets?
I tried the process using the Spatial Analyst extension and had the same weird color ramp.
I realized what I was doing wrong. I was running the shaded relief function on the hillshade. I ran the shade relief on the DEM itself and got the results I was looking for.
