TOPO MAPS Shows elevation, change in elevation, rivers, towns, points of interest, sometimes roads. Useful when hiking. Elevation is given in feet above sea level
KEY TERMS CONTOUR LINE – lines that show equal elevation
KEY TERMS INDEX CONTOUR – darker line that gives elevation above sea level
KEY TERMS RELIEF – the difference in elevation between the highest and lowest points in an area.
KEY TERMS CONTOUR INTERVAL– the difference in elevation between contour lines
GOLDEN RULES RULE 1 – points on a contour line represent the same elevation
GOLDEN RULES RULE 2 – CLOSE contour lines = STEEPFAR APART contour lines = GENTLE
GOLDEN RULES RULE 3 – contour lines that cross a stream are V shaped.The V points to upstream to higher elevation
GOLDEN RULES RULE 4 – = The tops of hills, mountains, peaks= depressions, where lines point to bottom of depression
