This paper proposes a technique, "residual relief separation", to enhance landforms in DEMs prior to visualization and digital mapping. This is applied to a 600km2 region surrounding Lough Gara, Ireland, where drumlins overlie a regional relief of hills. Here, residual relief separation uses this difference in width-scale. Finally, vizualisation uses a simple black-to-white colour scale for height. This research demonstrates the use of width-scale parameters to enhance landscape visualization
