1.1 introduction to maps
• A map is a representation of all or part of the Earth drawn on a flat surface
at a specific scale.
• Maps use a variety of symbols and colours to represent selected features of
an area.

1.2 Types of maps
1.General purpose maps (reference maps, )
show both natural and human-made features such as coastlines, lakes, rivers,
boundaries, settlements, roads, rail lines, and others.
2.Thematic maps, (special-purpose maps, )
illustrate the geographical distribution of a particular theme or phenomenon.
Landforms, aspects of climate, vegetation and soil types, demographics, industry,
manufacturing, and natural resources are examples of thematic map.
3. Topographic maps
As the term suggests, these maps show the topography or surface features of the
landscape through the use of contour lines.

• all maps share common properties or map basics that provide information to assist
the reader in studying and interpreting the maps. and they are called map elements
as listed below.
1.3 Basic Elements of Maps
• a title,
• scale,
• legend,
• date of publication,
• direction,
• information about the map projection. Etc.

Prepare by Eng Shuaib Muhumed 6
Direction:
Direction tells you which way to hold the map.
By convention, most maps are made with their top portion directed at North.
The North direction is generally indicated by an arrow in the maps
Legend:
is a guide which lists symbols and colours used on a map to represent different
geographic features.
Legend helps to identify what symbols and colours represent in the map.
Scale:
can be defined as the ratio of the distance between two points on the map and the same
two points on the Earth’s surface.

1.4Topographic maps.
A graphical representation of the three-dimensional shape of the earth’s
surface that shows elevation and shape.
Contours are lines on a map that join places of equal elevation above the
sea level.
This three-dimensional effect allows for detailed study of landscape and drainage
features.
 Topographic maps are usually of a large scale and show many of the features of
general-purpose maps in considerable detail.

1.5. Topographic profile
topographic profile is a diagram that shows the change in elevation of the land
surface along anygiven line (an area “looked from the side”).

How to Make a Topographic Profile
This represents a very simple topographic map of a hill. The hill is steep on the left side
(thecontour lines are very close together) and has a gentle slope on the right side. The
numbers represent the elevation of the contour lines. (*)
What would the hill look like if you were to slice it from left to right? (*)

Normally, the Earth’s surface is not this blocky. In a topographic profile a line is drawn from these
points (red dots) producing a smooth transition. (*)

1.6 contour lines
 Contour line is an imaginary line on the ground surface joining the points of equal
elevation is known as contour.
It facilitates depiction of the relief of terrain in a two-dimensional plan or map.
 In other words, contour is a line in which the ground surface is intersected by a
level surface obtained by joining points of equal elevation. This line on the map
represents a contour and is called contour line.
Contouring is the science of representing the verticaldimension of the terrain on a
two-dimensional map.

1.7 Contour Map
• a map showing contour lines is known as Contour map.
• A contour map gives an idea of the altitudes of the surface features as well as their
relative positions in plan serves the purpose of both, a planand a section.

1.8Basicelementsofcontourmaps
indexContour Line is a bolded Contour lines with elevation numbers above the sea
level
Contour Interval (CI) – It is the vertical distance between any twoconsecutive contours.
This interval depends upon
(i) the nature of the ground (i.e. whether flat or sleep).
(ii) the scale of the map
(iii) the purpose of the survey.
Horizontal equivalent (he) Horizontal equivalent is the horizontal distance between two
consecutive contour lines measured tothe scale of the map.
 Gradient - The steepness of a slope as measured in degrees, percentage, or as a distance
ratio (rise/run).
JPTC, WSS, Sketch and interpret map and drawing handout for level I
Prepared by Eng Shuaib Muhumed 17
The difference in elevation
between the two index
contours (800 - 700)is 100.
We cross five lines as we go
from the 700m line to the
800m line (NOTE:We count
the lines between the index
contours, then ADDone.
In this case, we have
4 lines + 1= 5).
Therefore, is we divide the
elevation difference
(100) by the numberof lines
(5) we will get the contour
interval. In this case it is 20.

1.9 General Features of Contour Line
Topographic Maps can show:elevation:
Contour lines connect points of equal
elevation.
 Topographic Maps can show:
if the land is steep or gentle
 Steep slopes are shown by
closely spaced contour line
 Gentle slopes are shown by
widely spaced contour lines.
 Contour lines do notintersect,
branch or cross.

Prepared by Eng Shuaib Muhumed 22
 Topographic Maps can show
whether it is a ridge or a valley,
and stream flow directions:
A valley on a topographic map is
represented by a series of V-shaped
contour lines pointing towards
higher elevations.
When contour lines cross streams
they bend in upstream; that
means, the contour line forms a
'V or U-shaped' with the apex at
the intersection with the stream,
and pointing in an upstream
direction.

A ridge on a topographic map is
represented by a series of V-shaped
contour lines pointing towards lower elevations.

Topographic Maps can show
if there is Hill or Depression
 Closed contours appearing on the
map as ellipses or circles represent hill,
 Closed contours with hachures, short
lines pointing toward the center o
fthe
closure represent closed depressions.
on the other hand, we can identify
based on the elevation value for the
inner/ outer loops
 it is a hill if the innermost loop has
higher number of elevations.
 It is depression if the innermost loop
has lower value number.

1.10. Purpose (Uses) Of Contouring/Contour Map
 Contour survey is carried out at the starting of any engineering projects
such as a road, a railway, a canal, a dam, bridges a building etc.
 contour maps are prepared in order to select the mosteconomical or suitable site.
It helps to locate the alignment of a canal so that itshould follow a ridge line.
 It helps to mark the alignment of roads and railways so that the quantity of earthwork
both in cutting and fillingshould be minimum.
It helps for getting information about the groundwhether it is flat, undulating or
mountainous.
It helps to find the capacity of a reservoir and volumeof earthwork especially in a
mountainous region.
It helps to locate the physical features of the groundsuch as a pond depression, hill,
steep or small slopes

Landforms, aspects of climate, vegetation and soil types, demographics, industry, manufacturing, and natural resources are examples of thematic map. 3. Topographic maps As the term suggests, these maps show the topography or surface features of the landscape through the use of contour lines.

  • 11. JPTC, WSS, Sketch and interpret map and drawing handout for level I Prepare by Eng Shuaib Muhumed 11 How to Make a Topographic Profile This represents a very simple topographic map of a hill. The hill is steep on the left side (thecontour lines are very close together) and has a gentle slope on the right side. The numbers represent the elevation of the contour lines. (*) What would the hill look like if you were to slice it from left to right? (*)

It facilitates depiction of the relief of terrain in a two-dimensional plan or map.  In other words, contour is a line in which the ground surface is intersected by a level surface obtained by joining points of equal elevation. This line on the map represents a contour and is called contour line. Contouring is the science of representing the verticaldimension of the terrain on a two-dimensional map.

This interval depends upon (i) the nature of the ground (i.e. whether flat or sleep). (ii) the scale of the map (iii) the purpose of the survey. Horizontal equivalent (he) Horizontal equivalent is the horizontal distance between two consecutive contour lines measured tothe scale of the map.  Gradient - The steepness of a slope as measured in degrees, percentage, or as a distance ratio (rise/run).
  • 17. JPTC, WSS, Sketch and interpret map and drawing handout for level I Prepared by Eng Shuaib Muhumed 17 The difference in elevation between the two index contours (800 - 700)is 100. We cross five lines as we go from the 700m line to the 800m line (NOTE:We count the lines between the index contours, then ADDone. In this case, we have 4 lines + 1= 5). Therefore, is we divide the elevation difference (100) by the numberof lines (5) we will get the contour interval. In this case it is 20.
