Would be nice to add Land Cover Type to DEM Shading. So you could highlight everything with a certain land cover definition, or AND it in with other existing criteria like slope, elevation, aspect, and canopy.

Land Cover being the land cover definition that is provided when you look a Line's Terrain Statistics (e.g. Grassland, Shrub, Ice, Water, Barren, etc...)

    Hi Derrick,

    Nice, I like it!

    Thanks for taking the time to give us feedback! We are working hard to ensure CalTopo continues to improve and that work is often thanks to users sharing their thoughts and feedback. We'll consider these requests going forward. We often take a variety of user requests and incorporate them into a larger function, so stay tuned as we release new features throughout the year!
