hello Cal Topo-
I am a very avid backcountry skier from the U.S living in New Zealand. I realize that the slope angle shading is not available for New Zealand maps, but it is a very important tool that I use for avalanche safety. Is there any possible way I can access this feature for NZ maps, or is there another map database where this is available?

    Right now I only have elevation data for the US and parts of Canada, obtained from those governments directly. I'm looking into expanding that coverage using a global datasource like SRTM or ASTER, but the resolution of that would be significantly worse.

    However, it looks like New Zealand now provides its own digital elevation model (DEM) data for free online. I don't know what resolution it will have, but it looks promising. Not something I'll be able to add in time for your current winter season though.
