    49 It is recommended that you begin by sketching the land cells. Ecospace is marine oriented and uses depth values to express land and water: land cells have a depth of 0 or less, water cells have positive, integer values indicating depth in meters. 
     49It is recommended that you begin by sketching land and water cells in the 'Depth' layer. Ecospace is marine oriented: water cells cells have a depth of 1 or more, expressing depth in meters; land cells have depth values of 0 or less. Thus, to enter land cells, sketch depth values of 0.

    5151The distinction between land and water areas is crucial to the definition of the basemap. This distinction determines the map's overall appearance (i.e., its resemblance to a geographic map) and, in case of detailed maps, the routes through which organisms move between adjacent cells. Note that movements on the Ecospace map can only resemble those of rooks on chessboards, but not those of bishops (i.e., sideways not diagonal movement). Thus, a system including, e.g., a number of narrow, crooked channels must be simplified.
