Hi all! I need to show a lop of slopes in a map  I am drawing in Illsutrator.
In other topographic maps you see a line on the top of the slope with a longer and a shorter line in 90 degrees going down the hill. Like the green lines in the added screenshots. How can I create this without drawing every single line?

I am not familiar with that map-drawing convention; and it seems pretty clear that a Stroke alone is not sufficient for something like this as it apprears to be applied to an area, not a line. 

Also the angle of the short lines appears not to be 90˚ relative to the path-segment from which they emmanate.
