Can I make an aspect map showing all the different colors of the slopes. The USGS maps ca do that. Do you have that feature?

    It sounds like you want to highlight different aspects with different colors. If so, you can do that by creating a custom DEM layer and assigning different colors to each aspect. You can learn about creating custom DEM layers on this page of our user guide. If you create a DEM layer that you want to use again, you can easily save it to your account for future use as well.

    If you are asking about something different, please let us know.
