Thanks indeed Sam.

Jaime's hf2iso does a fair job on this by generating a slope map from 
the image. It is relatively fast too to use. I do not have a good 
example of the marked stratification it provides on this computer; I 
shall post one later today.

The present scene does no really show the stratification for some reason 
that I am investigating. It has to do I guess with the somewhat 
exaggerated vertical scale left over from the strands image in the first 
place. This might be somewhat corrected by a blurred image map. I shall 
see how it goes.
