20 Contours: an imaginary line that connects points of equal elevation
21 Topography Cross-sections are sometimes used to represent 3-D objects in 2 dimensions.
22 Topography Cross-sections are sometimes used to represent 3-D objects in 2 dimensions. Vertical scale sometimes exaggerated to better show change
23 Contours always connect, but not always within the map boundaries... topography of 2 hills This could be the edge of a presented map
26 Slope direction is calculated perpendicular to the contour lines. Water flows downhill......so the direction of flow is always perpendicular to the contour lines, since this is the steepest slope
27 Many maps are in the form of topographical maps aka topo Interpreting a 3D world in 2D
28 a contour interval is the vertical distance b/w contours. 10 on topos; 2-5 on site plans every 5th contour is an index contour shown in bold contours far apart show a gentle slope a spot elevation is a point of known elevation used as a pt of reference for surveys. a benchmark (BM): point of known position & elevation used as a pt of reference for surveys. a series of concentric contours ending in a small closed circle or oval shows a local hilltop contours close together show a steep slope contours very close together show a cliff contour lines of a ridge are in a U that always points downhill green areas show forest cover; white areas denote fields contours at a stream form a V that always points uphill
