 + 
 +For 1:25000 maps, I've had reasonable results from using the following formula in the Raster Calculator to classify the streams into categories. Different scales may need different bounds, ​and this doesn'​t account for significantly larger rivers.

 The steps below have been tested in the Blue Mountains, a region that has a significant number of relatively vertical sandstone cliffs. It may be less effective in different terrain. The steps below have been tested in the Blue Mountains, a region that has a significant number of relatively vertical sandstone cliffs.

 +This is more a set of ideas than a fully fledged process. The main aims are to get a set of steps that can largely be automated, and that create cliffline vectors that are running in the correct direction. There is still some way to go on this!
