when I talked about 'raster squares', I meant Height.bmp. When you cut a height map from the data, then you get a relief data - raster square 2048x2048. And it appears in QGIS layers, so you can donload some vector data from other sources and cut out them from relief data. In result you will have the data with resolution what you need.
That cutting automaticly convert vector data to raster, then you can recolor that data in style-menu inside QGIS.
The idea was cut every vector data from leief data and recolor them in QGIS and at the end you will have bunch of layers, rivers, roads, forest, fields, buildings, etc. And after that render them in one file and work with that file in AB editor.
Well, someone shared me a style for height.bmp for QGIS, so we can do height bmp from QGIS. But I wish to learn about the process of cutting vectors from OSM and make a river, buildings, and etc layers. So, you mean you are cutting vectors from maps like OSM or OCM, and convert them to raster layer, than change the color using AB palette from QGIS, is this correct?
I think I used to know how to get road, river, and etc from vector maps like OSM or Google Road, but I completely forget. So it would be great if your manual could explain those process.
