maps and terrain

Topographic maps use lines to show the contours of the landscape.
The closer the lines, the steeper the slope.

topographic map
  1. Unless otherwise indicated, the top of the map is north
  2. Standing or flowing water (such as the river) is indicated by shaded areas of variable width and shape. Dashed blue lines indicate an intermittent or seasonal water
  3. Dashed parallel lines indicate a gravel or graded road, sometimes called an improved road
  4. Solid black lines indicate a paved or oiled road
  5. Numbers interrupting the contour lines show elevation. Increasing numbers indicate uphill, decreasing numbers, downhill
  6. Loosely grouped dotted areas show marsh or wetland areas
  7. Single dashed lines show trails
