Topographic Maps
Topographic map - Plate Tectonics A topographic map with contour lines Part of the same map in a perspective shaded relief view illustrating how the contour lines follow the terrain Section of topographical map of Nablus area (West Bank) with contour lines at 100-meter intervals. Heights are colour-coded In modern mapping, a topographic map is a type of map characterized by large-scale detail and quantitative representation of relief, usually using contour lines, but historically using a variety of methods. Traditional definitions require a topographic map to show both natural and man-made features. A topographic map is typically published as a map series, made up of two or more map sheets that combine to form the whole map. A contour line is a line connecting places of equal elevation. Natural Resources Canada provides this description of topographic maps:[1] These maps depict in detail ground relief (landforms and terrain), drainage (lakes and rivers), forest cover, administrative areas, populated areas, transportation routes and facilities (including roads and railways), and other man-made features. Other authors define topographic maps by contrasting them with another type of map; they are distinguished from smaller-scale "chorographic maps" that cover large regions,[2][3] "planimetric maps" that do not show elevations,[4] and "thematic maps" that focus on specific topics.[5] However, in the vernacular and day to day world, the representation of relief (contours) is popularly held to define the genre, such that even small-scale maps showing relief are commonly (and erroneously, in the technical sense) called "topographic".[3] The study or discipline of topography is a much broader field of study, which takes into account all natural and man-made features of terrain. History[edit] See also: Topography § Etymology, Cadastre § History, and Cartography § History Topographic maps are based on topographical surveys. Performed at large scales, these surveys are called topographical in the old sense of topography, showing a variety of elevations and landforms.[6] This is in contrast to older cadastral surveys, which primarily show property and governmental boundaries. The first multi-sheet topographic map series of an entire country, the Carte géométrique de la France, was completed in 1789.[7] The Great Trigonometric Survey of India, started by the East India Company in 1802, then taken over by the British Raj after 1857 was notable as a successful effort on a larger scale and for accurately determining heights of Himalayan peaks from viewpoints over one hundred miles distant.[8] Global indexing system first developed for International Map of the World Topographic surveys were prepared by the military to assist in planning for battle and for defensive emplacements (thus the name and history of the United Kingdom's Ordnance Survey). As such, elevation information was of vital importance.[9] As they evolved, topographic map series became a national resource in modern nations in planning infrastructure and resource exploitation. In the United States, the national map-making function which had been shared by both the Army Corps of Engineers and the Department of the Interior migrated to the newly created United States Geological Survey in 1879, where it has remained since.[10][11] 1913 saw the beginning of the International Map of the World initiative, which set out to map all of Earth's significant land areas at a scale of 1:1 million, on about one thousand sheets, each covering four degrees latitude by six or more degrees longitude. Excluding borders, each sheet was 44 cm high and (depending on latitude) up to 66 cm wide. Although the project eventually foundered, it left an indexing system that remains in use. By the 1980s, centralized printing of standardized topographic maps began to be superseded by databases of coordinates that could be used on computers by moderately skilled end users to view or print maps with arbitrary contents, coverage and scale. For example, the Federal government of the United States' TIGER initiative compiled interlinked databases of federal, state and local political borders and census enumeration areas, and of roadways, railroads, and water features with support for locating street addresses within street segments. TIGER was developed in the 1980s and used in the 1990 and subsequent decennial censuses. Digital elevation models (DEM) were also compiled, initially from topographic maps and stereographic interpretation of aerial photographs and then from satellite photography and radar data. Since all these were government projects funded with taxes and not classified for national security reasons, the datasets were in the public domain and freely usable without fees or licensing.

How to Download The Best Maps For Photographers
If you're a photographer who spends a lot of time exploring rural areas and small towns to find your subject matter, you need good, accurate, detailed maps. GPS and online maps like Google Maps are popular but often inaccurate and not detailed enough, and they die if the batteries run out of juice! I prefer to use good, old fashioned printed maps. The problem is, that commercially made ones often suck for exploring rural areas. They lack the precise detail I like. The US Geological Survey, an agency of the US Government has been creating incredibly detailed topographic maps of the entire United States for more than a century, and you can download and print these maps, which are superior to any commercially produced maps that I have seen, for FREE! In this video, I show you how to search for maps and download them from The National Map, the US Geological Survey's topographic map website. Here is the download page link: https://viewer.nationalmap.gov/basic/ If you want to add the north-south orientation lines to your maps, as shown in the video, here is the download link for the grid lines: http://crawfordphotoschool.com/downloads/geographic-north-grid.zip If you found this tutorial useful, please consider a donation so that I can continue to produce these free tutorials.

Each map can be manipulated in real-time -- touch a country to see photographs, video, or statistics; calculate the coordinates of a country's capital by pointing to its location; explore an ocean's depths by tapping it with a digital pen -- the powers of exploration and discovery are the students' to wield.
