First of all, I want to say hello to everybody on the site.

I understand a lot of the element of cartography that help determine river placement, lake placement, and different types of landscapes such as marsh, or forest. The problem I often encounter comes in my second stage of mapping, when I'm trying to figure out where the mountains go, in order to determine river placement. Is there a system to help determine where to place mountains, and why? The topic on river placement was very well done, and I was hoping to find something similar for mountains. I tried to use the search feature to find a topic on the subject, but I'm still learning how to navigate the website and where to find topics like that, so I was unable to find it. It appears that almost all the tutorials in the tutorial section are mainly about how to use particular software to get the right visual effects. Thank you in advance to everybody here
