OGF:Making detailed forest cover

A method to make detailed forest cover. This method is recommended for those familiar with JOSM.

  1. Draw a random-shaped forest polygon, then another, then another, until you have perhaps twenty or so. Copy (duplicated by using Ctrl+D), resize (Ctrl+Alt) and/or rotate (Shift+Ctrl) them all so you generate even more variants. To create slightly larger, more detailed ones, you can draw segments using the FastDraw plugin.
  1. Copy and paste these at random into the area to be filled, allowing the segments to overlap. (You can combine overlap areas by selecting them and pressing Shift+J.) JOSM won't display the border lines so it will create the patchwork effect when uploaded. You can copy-paste 'clusters' of these shapes and with a bit of rotation and resizing they will look different.
