Hi All,


I couldn’t figure out if there is a way to derive rivers from the contour lines. I tried to convert a contour to dem by using the Create Tin, tin to Raster tools.


Then, I used the following tools in this order:


Flow direction

Flow accumulation

Raster calculation (setnull ("flowaccumulation",0))

Raster to polyline


But the result not seams correct and it displayed as in the screenshot



What might be the issue here?

 may I need follow another or additional commands



Thanks in advance,
