Hi everyone. I'm Martinawa, owner of Adaria, and recently I've been involved in a project regarding the topography of my country, eventually uploading into the topo layer the a contour map on the whole country. I'm not here to talk about my work, though, but the topo layer itself.
I've been enjoying my time with the topo layer in Adaria, and I have the feeling that working on a topo map for the OGF Topo Layer is a very intensive but satisfying work. Sadly it's work that often goes unnoticed by many mappers, either because they don't pay attention to the layer itself, or because topo edits don't show up on the OGF edit history (as they are actually not edits on OGF themselves), and I think it's a shame that many topo layers go completely unnoticed because they only cover small terriories. (As an example, I didn't know until today that there was a topo layer map of Udilugbulgidhu's Hesperis
I'd like to suggest the admins (and to an extent to the whole of the community), that this layer should have a little bit more of a presence into the OGF world, as it can become an essential tool for worldbuilding if well used. For example, keeping a kind of "history list", with the edits made in the topo layer would be useful for those looking for inspiration, and also a chance for the users who made their topos to feature them and get feedback.
I know that user Luciano has been for now the go-to source for everything about the topo layer, but it's a shame that there's only one person to go to when wanting to ask about how to make such a thing. I'm of course willing to collaborate into making the Topo section of the OGF map a more comprehensive and motivating place for people to start adventuring themselves, but I'm sure more people could give their insights in topography if that part of the map was to be "easier to notice".
