You could also add a bit of a wave to the lines with the Ripple filter...Filter - Distort - Ripple.
    That was the first way I tried it. I think it works better this way: Selection of land, expand to suit, feather to suit, fill with white, add noise, horizontal motion blur to suit, then sharpen. After you sharpen (sometimes I sharpen two or three times), adjust brightness and contrast and your set.

    Depending on the size of my map the wind filter was hell on my processor.

    I don't have the wind filter. Is that something you can download?
    The road to success is always under construction.

    I have Photoshop Elements 7 and my wind filter is under the stylize tab. I am not sure if you can get this specific one but I am sure there are others out there.

    You're probably right about the motion blur being better...that's the good thing - lots of ways to get similar results.

    Agreed, but I think its just better for me, others might like using wind. I use to use spatter then motion blur. Then I tried reticulation. Finally using noise gave it that look I was going for.
