Hill
A hill is a landform that extends above the surrounding terrain. It often has a distinct summit, although in areas with scarp/dip topography a hill may refer to a particular section of flat terrain without a massive summit (e.g. Box Hill, Surrey).Contents1 Terminology 2 Historical significance 3 Military significance 4 Sports and games 5 Largest man-made 6 Gallery 7 See also 8 References 9 External linksTerminology[edit] Chocolate Hills
Chocolate Hills
of the PhilippinesHills in Tuscany, ItalyThe distinction between a hill and a mountain is unclear and largely subjective, but a hill is universally considered to be less tall and less steep than a mountain. In the United Kingdom, geographers historically regarded mountains as hills greater than 1,000 feet (304.8 meters) above sea level, which formed the basis of the plot of the 1995 film The Englishman Who Went Up a Hill

Mountain
A mountain is a large landform that stretches above the surrounding land in a limited area, usually in the form of a peak. A mountain is generally steeper than a hill. Mountains are formed through tectonic forces or volcanism. These forces can locally raise the surface of the earth. Mountains erode slowly through the action of rivers, weather conditions, and glaciers. A few mountains are isolated summits, but most occur in huge mountain ranges. High elevations on mountains produce colder climates than at sea level

Rocky Mountains
The Rocky Mountains, commonly known as the Rockies, are a major mountain range in western North America. The Rocky Mountains

stretch more than 3,000 miles (4,800 km) from the northernmost part of British Columbia, in western Canada, to New Mexico, in the Southwestern United States. Within the North American Cordillera, the Rockies are somewhat distinct from the Pacific Coast Ranges

were initially formed from 80 million to 55 million years ago during the Laramide orogeny, in which a number of plates began to slide underneath the North American plate. The angle of subduction was shallow, resulting in a broad belt of mountains running down western North America

Relief Mapping (computer Graphics)
In computer graphics, relief mapping is a texture mapping technique used to render the surface details of three-dimensional objects accurately and efficiently.[1] It can produce accurate depictions of self-occlusion, self-shadowing, and parallax.[2] It is a form of short-distance raytrace done in a pixel shader.[citation needed] Relief mapping is highly comparable in both function and approach to another displacement texture mapping technique, Parallax occlusion mapping, considering that they both rely on raytraces, though the two are not to be confused with each other, as parallax occlusion mapping uses reverse heightmap tracing.

Period. They once reached elevations similar to those of the Alps
