A hillmap is a visualization of a dataset that shows the relative elevation of each data point on a graph. The color and height of each point on the map corresponds to the data value for that point.

A hillmap can be used to visualize the features of a landscape and identify areas that are steep or flat. Hillmaps can also be used for navigation, as they provide an accurate depiction of the layout of the terrain. They’re also helpful when designing buildings and infrastructure, since you need to know how high your structure will be relative to the surrounding area.

Hillmaps are used by engineers, students, and others interested in studying topography. Hillmaps can be created manually or generated using GIS software. Some common uses for hillmaps include land surveying, land planning, and environmental studies.
