On a topographic map, the closer the contour lines the
a) gentler the slope b) steeper the slope c) lower the elevation d) flatter the land surface
A scale of 1:1000 on a topo map indicates that
a) 1000 units on the map equals 1 unit in the real world b) 1 unit on the map is greater than 1 unit in the real world c) 1 unit on the map equals 1000 units in the real world d) the map represents the entire Earth
If the contour interval on a topo map is 10 meters, and one contour line is labeled 50 m
a) the adjacent contour line would represent 20 m in elevation b) the adjacent contour line would represent 60 m in elevation c) the adjacent contour line would represent 150 m in elevation d) the adjacent contour line would represent 10 m in elevation
When you observe contour lines with hachures on a topographic map, this indicates that
a) you have crossed a stream b) the elevation of this area is increasing c) you are entering a mountainous area d) a depression is located in this part of the map
How are streams indicated on a topographic map?
a) by contour lines that form v's which point upstream b) by contour lines that form v's which point downstream c) by contour lines that form u's which point upstream d) by contour lines that form u's which point upstream
On a topo map, how would you determine if a feature was a hill or a valley?
a) a hill would have contour lines that are close together and form ovals or circles b) a valley would have contour lines that are close together and form ovals or circles c) a hill would have v shaped contour lines which are close together d) a valley would have close together contour lines with hachures
How would a sink hole be identified on a topo map?
a) by contour lines which show higher elevation at the center of the formation b) by contour lines that are very close together and the highest elevation at the center c) by contour lines with v's pointing toward the center of the formation d) by contour lines with hachures
The distance between contour lines on a topo map is called the
a) contour interval b) elevation c) contour index d) gradient
A set of circles inside circles on a topo map indicate a
a) hill b) stream c) depression d) valley
Calculate the gradient if the change in field value is equal to 100 m and the distance is equal to 50 km
