  • 2. Topographic maps give an ------ perspective or view of the land. 
  • 5. Large areas of blue on a topographic map indicate -----. 
  • 6. Type of map which expresses the relief of a landscape, using a 2-dimensional (flat) format. 
  • 10. Standardized unit of land used by the U.S. Land Office, shown on nearly all topographic maps. 
  • 14. A topographic feature indicated by a pattern of V-shaped contour lines pointing upstream. 
  • 15. Boundary lines which run north and south, marking off east and west of a map. 
  • 16. The reference elevation for all contours (elevation equals "zero") is at --- ----- (2 words)
  • 19. Length x Width = ?
  • 22. An imaginary line on a topographic map, connecting all points of the same elevation. 
  • 23. Parallel boundary lines which divide north and south regions on a global map of the world. 
  • 24. Lines which indicate a depression rather than a hill; appear as "teeth" inside contour lines. 
  • 25. The standard color used for contour lines on topographic maps.
  • 27. The standard color used for water bodies on a topographic map.
  • 28. A land surface in which there are theoretically no contour lines is classified as -----.
  • 29. A topographic map which covers a "square" area of land (by reading longitude and latitude coordinates.)
  • 1. A representation of land on a planar surface, using an established scale.
  • 2. Topographic maps show the land as viewed from the ---.
  • 3. A cross-sectional view of the surface topography of the land, as specified by a section line.
  • 4. Map scale where the units between map and land are identical; a ratio where no units are used.
  • 7. The surface area (in square miles) covered by a single section within a township.
  • 8. Type of map encompassing topographic features as well as the underlying bedrock.
  • 9. A measure of the slope of the land; usually as the elevation difference divided by map distance.
  • 11. The length (North-South distance) or width (East-West distance) of a township, in miles.
  • 12. A pattern of contour lines in which the "V" points toward higher elevation indicates a ------ ------ (2 words).
  • 13. Type of map scale which is drawn out as a bar or ruler, located at the bottom of a topographic map.
  • 17. Boundary lines on a world globe which converge at the north and south poles, subdividing East-West.
  • 18. Map scale which usually (but not always) involves different types of units between map and land (2 words).
  • 20. Type of scale in which the units between map and land are the same type (abbreviation for 2 words)
  • 21. The elevation difference between any 2 adjacent contour lines.
  • 26. The standard reference direction for all maps; top of the map indicates -----.
