LightingAngle

LightingAngle
is an option for ReliefPlot and related functions that specifies the angle from which simulated illumination is taken to come.

DetailsDetails

  • Angles are measured in radians, counterclockwise from the positive direction in the final image.
  • LightingAngle->{, } takes the effective illumination source to be oriented at angle out of the image plane.
  • LightingAngle-> is equivalent to LightingAngle->{, Pi/4}.
