3.11.2. The rules of attribution of terrain

When you create a terrain item, the category selection menu opens:

When you choose a category, the attribute panel for the map item opens:

If the item you selected is represented by a placemark (i.e. a vertex, mountain pass, or volcano) the attribute panel for the section of line will look like this:

If the item you selected is represented by a polygon (i.e. an island, archipelago, or other such item) the attribute panel for the section of line will look like this:

Rules for adding attributes to these items:

3.11.2.1

Select a polygonal item type from the list:

  • Island: a piece of land that is surrounded by water on all sides As the island is allowed to render permanent artificial reinforced concrete design used for the arrangement of different structures.

    Sections of land that are surrounded by water due to seasonal changes (floods or tides) are not considered islands. You should not use a polygon for a body of water or terrain types to map these sections of land.

  • Archipelago: a group of several islands.

  • Other terrain items: terrain items that do not correspond to one of the other types.

3.11.2.2
When adding attributes to relief point objects:
  1. Select the object type from the list: Summit, Mountain Pass, Volcano.
    Note. Objects of the Summit type belong to different subtypes, for example
    mountains, rocks, or spoil tips, which is reflected in their names (see below).
  2. Set the object name as follows (you can include the object height in meters in the name):
    • If the type (subtype), proper name, and height of the object are known, then set the “official” name using the following combination: [proper name]+[type]+[height]. “Caption” should only include the proper name.

      For example: the official name is Belukha mountain 4509 meters, and the name for the caption on the map is Belukha.

    • If the object does not have a proper name, and its type and height are known, then the “official” name is set using the combination [type]+[height], and the “caption” should only include the height value.

      For example: the official name is Mountain 1157 meters, and the caption on the map is 1157 m.

      As an exception, for single items of types that are not typical for a given area (for example, a rock, spoil tip, or hill), it is allowed to specify the type in the name “for the caption”.

      For example: the official name is Rock 870 meters, and the caption is Rock 870 m.

      Note. If a mountain, rock, or hill has multiple unnamed peaks, then the highest one is indicated on the map.
    • If the proper name of the “Summit” item does not contain its geographical type, then for single objects that are not typical for the given (for example, a rock, spoil tip, or hill), it is allowed to specify the subtype in the name “for the caption”.

      For example: the official name is Rock 870 meters, and the caption is Rock 870 m.

    • If the object does not have a proper name, it is allowed to specify the value of its height both in the “official” name and in the “caption”. For example: the official name is Height 152 meters, and the caption on the map is 152 m.
    • If the name and height of the object are unknown, then set the object type as an “official” name in accordance with the general rules for naming unnamed items. In this case don't set the caption for the map.

      For example: the official name is Volcano, the caption is not set.

Note. The height value of the object is always given in meters and rounded to the nearest integer. For example: 269.8 meters → 270 meters, 112.2 meters → 112 meters.
3.11.2.3

Terrain relief items are named in accordance with the rules outlined in section 3.11.2.2 and with the general rules (see 3.1.3. Map item naming rules).
