    It looks awesome. I agree, the rivers need a bit more buffer ... and one more thing: is Iceland really so forested?

    Hehe. I was just about to ask the exact same thing. I thought it was very lacking in wood?

    Yeah that threw me off when I first saw it, but the data I have is for the natural ecosystem without human interference. Before humans arrived, Iceland was predominantly boreal forest. It's probably going to be covered up with the legend anyway.

    Could be true, dat ... you need wood to burn with lava.

    Maybe I went a bit too short on the mountain buffer this time.

    Inkscape isn't able to handle 80,000 tree symbols. This could prove problematic.

    My new approach will be to take the tree and mountain layers, combine them and sort them, then add an attribute with a random value. Then symbolize on that value. Then I'll turn off all other layers and export a high res raster image from QGIS and load that into Inkscape along with vector versions of the rivers, coast, etc and do final composition that way.

    OK, now with symbols for non-forest biomes.
