    Hi

    I asked a fellow freelancer to create some hill shading for me based on the WGS84 datum as specified, but it doesn’t fit. Is there any other projection info I need to give him?

    Thanks

    The linework in Natural Earth is designed to register with SRTM derived relief at less than 1 km per pixel. If he’s using older dem/dtm, its positional accuracy might not match. Or if you’ve zoomed in past 1:10 million scale but are using higher res raster, it will not register due to scale missmatch. What area of the world are you mapping, at what scale?
