London elevation model à la Joy Division [QGIS]

I recently decided to give a try to this tutorial by Nicolas Duggan on using a Digital Surface model (DSM) to create a Joy-Divisionesque elevation map, and I have to say it’s been a really fun one!

I followed the tutorial in QGIS, using the Environmental Agency’s 0.5m DSM. I then very simply used the QGIS Cloud plugin to publish and host my webmap.  Enjoy!
