Power line, cableway or skilift. The bars indicate the exact location of the pylons.

Colour: black.

Line width 0.14mm

tag length 0.3mm, spacing at pylons

ISOM 1990 Definition

As ISOM 2000 but line width was 0.125mm
ISOM number changed from 514 to 511.

OCAD Methods

Defined as line symbol 516.0, use the line tool, clicking at each pylon.

Drawing Considerations

Often running in a ride / clearing that may be overgrown

If the line runs alongside a better navigation feature, such as a boundary or track, then the power line may be left off.

To get a true straight line between the pylons; define the corner pylons first and then add middle ones by adding corner points on the defined line.
