"Mountain range line" ways

Posted by tule00 on 25 June 2018 in English (English)

Hey everyone,

I tried to make some untagged ways which show me where the mountain range "goes", if you know what I mean.

My question is, is that realistic? I know some things, but I am not an expert in geography/geology. But anyway I find it useful because that gives me a sense of topography.

What are your opinions about this?

Best regards

Having guides that can be repurposed later isn't a bad thing, in my opinion. Not all ranges are nice lines, however. So it really depends on what you're going for. Are you thinking of your lines as tracing peaks or as contours (like a topo map)? If you're thinking of contouring, have you considered working on such a layer?

I used to draw lines all over that I called "watershed" lines. They help me to figure out how to route rivers realistically, and later, they can be a guide for contour (Topo layer) work. I have deleted most of these and no longer draw new ones, because a) I keep them in files offline to avoid cluttering up the OGF database, along with my contour work, and b) I have changed my approach somewhat. Anyway, I still think that way can have value.

Don't think of them as mountain range lines, think of them as "watershed" dividers - then you have more clarity and flexibility about what you're representing.
