Hillshading is used to create a three-dimensional effect that provides a sense of land relief. Shadows drawn on a map simulate the effects of sunlight falling across the surface of the landscape.
A map projection is a way how to transform points on a Earth to points on a map. This map of Cotopaxi uses Plate Carree projection. The Plate Carree projection is a simple cylindrical projection originated in the ancient times. It has straight and equally spaced meridians and parallels that meet at right angles.
All projections from a sphere to a plane are distorted. The drawback of the Plate Carree projection is that it doesn't make an attempt to compensate for these distortions. For the general view of Cotopaxi, this is not a significant problem. The detailed maps use the Mercator projection which preserves the shape of small areas better.
