U.S. Department of the Interior U.S. Geological Survey Reading Topographic Maps Interpreting the colored lines, areas, and other symbols is the fi rst step in using topographic maps. Features are shown as points, lines, or areas, depending on their size and extent.

    Map interpretation is the process of examining a given topographical map of an area represented for the purpose of identifying the geographical information of an area. It has two basic process; - Map reading -Map analysis. Map reading -is the process of examining the given topographical map, conventional symbols and signs. A step-by-step guide to buying and using topo maps If you enter the wilderness, at some point or another, you’ll be required to read a topographic map (often called topo maps). Reading topographic maps for wilderness adventure, research, survival, and navigation is critical—especially as a precautionary measure—for safety and comprehension of the terrain and : Jeremy Goldsmith.

    About the book: The practical exercises contained in this popular workbook are designed to develop readers' ability to interpret the landforms on any map or aerial photo. The questions posed foster the mental processes used in problem solving and have evolved over many years of use in the laboratory section of the authors' geomorphology courses. Most topographic maps make use of contour lines to depict elevations above sea level. The contour lines reveal the shape of the land in the vertical direction, allowing the 3-dimensional shape of the land to be portrayed on a 2-dimensional map. If you know how to read contour lines, you can look at a topographic map and visualize the shape of.

A topographic map shows more than contours. The map includes symbols that represent such fea-tures as streets, buildings, streams, and vegetation. These symbols are con-stantly refi ned to better relate to the features they represent, improve the appearance or readability of the map, or reduce production cost.

A topographic map is a type of map that shows elevation. Topographic maps are used by people like hikers and others who need to know what the elevation of an area is.

Lab 1: An Introduction to Topographic Maps Learning Objectives: Scale: As with all maps, scale is a fundamental element of topographic maps.

Proper interpretation of a map is impossible without a firm grasp of the scale of the map and more importantly, scale determines the resolution and detail of a map. Topographic Map Legend and Symbols. The topographic maps on TopoZone were created by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) and have evolved for more than a century.

Over time the maps became more detailed and new symbols were added for the different terrain, natural features, land boundaries, and man-made structures depicted by the surveyors. topographic maps of the Survey. Planimetric map. --A planimetric map is similar to a topographic map, except that it does not portray relief in a measurable form.
