Haarinkonaaipi, a new territory, a new country!

Posted by Öllöjoumi on 1 January 2018 in English (English)

Haarinkonaaipi lies in the north of Uletha, a few kilometres off the south eastern coast of konsiat. The territory consists of a group of mountainous and flat islands.

The country is inhabited by two contrasting groups of people: Haapi people (or the fishers who have blonde hair-blue eyes) and Ölleau people ( the reindeer herders who have dark-brown hair- green eyes Aasiatic people).

*Today, 1st januari marks the national day of the country! *

The name "Haa-rin-ko-naai-pi" literally means "Sea of sun's new land".

Location: UL161-06, UL161

A small island nation is a nice place to start, it allows for nice-looking mapping without many years' effort. I look forward to seeing your mapping.

I notice you started with the lakes. Good choice! Making natural features as detailed as possible at an early stage sets a good groundwork for a realistic-looking map. You may want to take a look at how other mappers have tagged the rivers; for now. you haven't actually mapped a river between the different bodies of water. It can be done in many ways: using waterway=river alone or combined with waterway=riverbank – or using a multipolygon, but that's for more experienced users. Smaller rivers can be drawn as a simple way, like here:

Well done for getting your territory! You might want to look at this for making your country realistic though. I like the mountains to the north of you country. I only found a cliff you put the wrong way round, there is a river flowing up it and rivers only flow down. Well done though. Hmaps5678
