Strange effect in hillshade from raw elevation export

Hello,

Sorry if this is under the wrong topic.

I recently exported some raw elevation data from the map engine for use in ArcGIS.

When I load the DEM, clip to the desired area and apply the hillshade tool in ArcGIS, I get strange horizontal and vertical lines all over the hillshade:

I’ve tried re-projecting to different coordinate systems etc etc but to no avail.

I’ve asked this question in the GIS forums but nobody seems to know.

If anyone has any ideas I would really really appreciate it! :sunglasses:

Can you please send us this map and image to support@dronedeploy.com? Thanks!

Zach from customer support solved the mystery!

Anyone with the same problem just apply the Focal Statistics tool in Spatial Analyst as shown in this guide: http://www.esri.com/news/arcuser/0506/files/coolglaciers.pdf

Cheers!
Al
