America Goes to the Devil
Sometimes it feels like America has descended into even deeper levels of hell. At such times you need the Digital Elevation Model from Hell.
The Digital Elevation Model from Hell is an Esri relief map which shows areas of low elevation as they might appear if the gates to hell had been thrown open. On this map the molten crevasses of the Underworld have consumed anyone who hasn't taken the higher ground.
Truly this is the end of days.
If you scroll to the bottom of the map you can view the molten color gradient used in this DEM. This molten color gradient is similar to an effect which you can duplicate with Mapbox Studio. Mapsmith has a nice tutorial which explains how you can create a map inspired by neon signs by overlaying different colored polylines on top of each other. You can view Mapsmith's completed Neon Map here.
