Firth of Hetzer

Posted by ADB52 on 19 October 2019 in English (English)

I'm proposing to change the southern end of the Firth of Hetzer, in that it will end on a line between Middel Hetzer (west) and Meldich (east). Although fully within the territory of Utterland, it is quite a change in coastline. Anybody got any objections? Have written to the owner of Shlonsk, which is only a few km north of this proposed line.

Proposed situation NEW

Location: 56.212, 47.145

JOSM. The scale is small, by necessity, to show the area involved. Clutters up the map with all the various villages, towns, cities, suburbs. Sorry.

Personally I think it will be less realistic unless you intend the landscape to be more mountainous and the rivers short and narrow. Rivers like to get big as they join and approach the coast on flat plains, rather than hitting the sea with a small bump. The change also makes the railways less convincing as they could take more direct routes between important settlements now there is no water to avoid.

A Dutch-Slavic language border is fascinating. Place names related to water might have to change in the revision though, makes no sense to have a 'mond' miles from the end of a river.

Thank you @Sarapeva for the feedback. As matters stand, the River Utter is meandering its widening way to the sea north of Solsburg and I think I'll keep the status quo.

On the display... This is where Fitlers in JOSM get very useful.


With a filter of "coastline=natural or waterway=*"
