Denali Elevation Profiles

Click the buttons to see different elevation profiles of Denali.

Elevation data are from the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission and were collected using Derek Watkins's SRTM Tile Grabber. The create-profiles.js Node.js script shows how the profiles were created from the elevation data. Data on the peaks came from The shaded relief color palette came from here. By the way, a realistic coloring of the mountain would be almost completely white. I wanted to highlight the elevation change so I chose this color ramp.
