       r.shade will drape a color raster map over a  shaded  relief  map.   In  place  of  shaded
       relief,  any  raster  map  can be used including aspect or slope.  The color raster map is
       usually an elevation raster map with colorful color table (as opposed to gray scale  color
       table). However, any raster map can be used including categorical raster maps.  The result
       is a raster map created from elevation and the shade raster.

       Comparing to creating shaded relief as semi-transparent overlay on the color  raster  map,
       this module gives result with more saturated colors.

       The input for this module can be created for example using r.slope.aspect or r.relief.

       NULL  values  are  propagated by default, so if any of the two input rasters contains NULL
       cell NULL will be also in the output. If -c flag is used and cell in color raster is NULL,
       just  shade  color is used. If cell in shade raster is NULL, shading effect is not applied
       and original colors are used. If bgcolor option is used, NULL value in  any  input  raster
       will be in the output replaced by the given color.


       Refer  to  the r.his help page for more details; r.shade is a frontend to that module with
       addition of brightness support similar to one provided by d.shade.  However, note that the
       brightness  is  not  implemenented in the same way as for d.shade and the results might be
       different.  r.shade is using method described in r.his manual page.


       In this example, the aspect map in the North Carolina sample dataset location is  used  to
       hillshade the elevation map:
       g.region raster=aspect -p
       r.shade shade=aspect color=elevation output=elevation_aspect_shaded
       d.mon wx0
       d.rast elevation_aspect_shaded
       In this next example, a shaded relief raster map is created and used to create a colorized
       hillshade raster map for later use:
       g.region raster=elevation
       r.relief input=elevation output=elevation_shaded_relief
       r.shade shade=elevation_shaded_relief color=elevation \
       d.mon wx1
       d.rast elevation_relief_shaded
       Interesting visualizations can be created  using  different  color  tables  for  elevation
       raster map, for example using haxby color table.
