Can you provide any more detail on how to make this using the Github code? it looks awesome!

Do you have the GitHub code and have you compiled it to an executable on whatever platform you use? Let me know and we'll go from there. Also, this map was made using the 1 arc second code that I have (and have not released yet). So I can make a map from four adjacent grids which means I can cross lines of lat lon. The 3 arc second version can't do that. So, that all said, 3 arc second SRTM data will not look as nice as 1 arc second but they will print pretty well depending on the area. When the maps get larger the printer resolution can't show the detail as well. I have to say I haven't done a side by side comparison but I think large-is areas will print ok. Let me know and I'll be happy to help you out. -- Tommy

I searched for the github code and it gave me two reaults. Which one would I want? I assume the TPSully one but I got both of them. can you compile to an exe without any special programs? I am using windows 10 and python 2.7.12.

I only posted the C code version. Someone else converted it to Python and posted it. To compile to an EXE on Windows you would need to use Visual Studio. I have been told there is a free version available for non-commercial use. Let me know if that's something you can pull off.

I think i have done it correctly, I have compiled using MinGW using the build instructions and have made the .OUT file. Do I need to change the .out to .exe?

You may need to for Windows to execute it. Have you downloaded a 3 arc second data file?

I downloaded a file from here.

https://dds.cr.usgs.gov/srtm/version1/North_America_3arcsec/3arcsec/

should I leave the file zipped or extract it?

The .exe says error stopped working when I try to run it, unless im not following the correct order of procedures?

The data file should be unzipped/

You shouldn't get an error. If the files compiled successfully then even if all you do is enter the name of the executable you would get an informational message showing the expected syntax. Remember, the program has to be compiled for the command prompt and run from the command prompt.
