Topographic maps are maps that have contour lines on them showing the elevation of land. The contour lines show an outline of the landform with many inner lines inside the outline. Sometimes the different lines are color-coded. Each color stands for a certain amount of elevation. Contour lines come in different shapes depending on the landform. Typically, the closer together the lines are, the higher the elevation.

Contour maps or topographic maps are used by meteorologists and other occupations that deal with weather and landforms. Oceanographers, geologists, environmental scientists and ecologists also use contour maps frequently with their job duties. Topographic maps began in the late 1500s by a Dutch man.

Every map has to have a scale, and a direct statement scale will give the map user a good idea of what to look for around a specific spot on the map to correlate it to the spot where they are standing. It also gives users a good idea of the distances between things.

If the scale on a map is one quarter-inch to every mile, and the distance between two towns is half an inch, the distance in real life is two miles. This gives a good scale for the user to stick to, and can give them a good estimate of how long it’ll take to get from point A to point B, or from point A to point C, and so on.
