Mapping Holland in the Shade
Dynamic Holland Shading is a gorgeous looking map that includes dynamic hill shading based on the date and time of day. Move the date and time of day sliders and you can see the hill shading update instantly on the map.
The dynamic hill shading is powered by a combination of MapBox's dynamic hillshading and the SunCalc library.
The F4 Map is another gorgeous map where the shadows on the map display in real-time and reflect the position of the sun, therefore moving throughout the day. The map also includes 3d buildings and trees.
Here's a little navigation tip: use the ctrl key with the up and down arrow keys on your keyboard to change the angle of the map.
