Sharpen Operator attributes
Sharpening terrain using the Sharpen Operator

Sharpens a height field using different convolution kernels.

Use this if you think your terrain looks too soft or too round, and you want more detail without actually adding new features.


Select a kernel here that looks good to you. Each kernel has a distinct look, and its own advantages. Some will get quirky when pushed too far.

The following are available:


The radius of the sharpen kernel. Larger values will sharpen the larger features more, and result in a more coarse look. This attribute is only available for the ‘variable’ kernels.


Increase this to emphasize the results of ‘Detail Enhancement, variable’.
