What would you like to do?
A topographical map may include?
You would be able to see roads on a topographical map.
the key explains what the colors and shapes on the map represent. It also has a scale so you can accurately find the distance between objects.
A topographic map shows the mountains, valleys, hills and the like; the highs and lows of the terrain With this map you can see how high mountains and hills are on the map by… reading the values written on a map.
ANSWER:this is a type of map produced to a specific scale outlining contour,the relief and natural features of a defind area. A relief map or contour map is another n…ame for a topographical map.
Because it tells you the diffrence in elevation between adjacent lines.
Answer . Contour interval is the actual change in elevation represented by the space between two adjacent topographic "rings". For example, if there is a contour interval o…f 20 feet, each topographic line on the map represents going either up or down by 20 feet of elevation (and sometimes it's hard to tell which). For convenience, many mapmakers include numbers every four or five lines to tell you what elevation is represented by that line.
geologists use . topographic maps to see surface features
Answer In all types of home, office, road, dam, and bridge development and construction. In agriculture, geology, paleontology, meteorology, and real estate. By gov…ernments to assess site suitability, resources, and planning. A topographic map is used to determine the elevations of a given terrain.
change in elevation: Distance So if the highest is 300m and the lowest is 100m then the change will be 200m. Pretend the distance between the two places is 1km but you have t…o make the units the same and kilometer does not equal meters so you have to convert km to m. Since 1000m=1km then 1km is 1000m and that will be the distance so 200m:1000m is 1:5 remember that there is no units for gradient. So the the answer is 1:5 or 0.2 or 20% Hope that helped!
I would use a topographic map to show the shape of the earths surface.
In the field a geologist will use a topographic map to locate his/her position and then mark on the map the interfaces of the rock types that are found. From this a Geological… map can be made and by using the intersection of the geology with the contours on the topographic map the Geologist can infer the geological structure of the strata beneath the ground.
A topographic map shows terrain features, which allows hikers andothers using a topographic map to verify their position throughterrain association. A hiker could, for example…, identify twolandmarks visible to them on the map, and, with a compass, use theazimuths of those two landmarks from their location to givethemselves a location of their own position.

Looking at a topographic map with many squiggly contour lines, you may feel as if you are gazing into a bowl of spaghetti. But with practice, you can learn to read a topog…raphic map. To read a topographic map, you must familiarize yourself with the map's scale and symbols and interpret the map's contour lines. Topographic maps have many uses in science and engineering, business, government, and everyday life. Suppose that you are an engineer planning a route for a highway over a mountain pass. Your design for the highway needs to solve several problems. To design a safe highway, you need a route that avoids the steepest slopes. To protect the area's water supply, the highway must stay a certain distance from rivers and lakes. You also want to find a route that avoids houses and other buildings. How would you solve these problems and find the best route for the highway? You would probably begin by studying topographic maps.
Look for the compass rose, it will point North. Also look for the table that shows map north, true north and magnetic north.
