I am fairly new to GIS.
I have been reading through this site and have not quite been able to figure out what I am doing wrong.
I am trying to create a contoured topographical map that I can cut on my laser cutter. The issue is that the area I am working on is coastal and there are lots of areas at or around sea level. As a result, the contour map does not include the general outline of the island/coast and is, consequently, largely unrecognizable.
How do I adjust the settings in QGIS to take into consideration the outline of the land mass I'm working with?
