Joy Division style

Joy Division – Olomouc region

QGIS styling of Olomouc region elevation – quite flat at all 🙂 For the very first time I tried style a map in Joy Division – just with lines indicating elevation. It is not perfect but this output took me about 10 minutes.

Quick workflow:

  • Extract elevation data by mask
  • Generate grid or random points in extend
  • Install plugin Point Sample Tool
  • Use it for sampling raster values into points
  • Translate rvalues in y-coordinate
  • Use Point to Path, order by „left“ and group by „top“ attribute
  • done 🙂
