"REC ROOM"

 

Located under the bar scales is the "Contour Interval." First, let me explain the term "Contour." It's pretty obvious that the earth is not flat. Mountains cover the surface, and so, the earth has "contour." Each mountain, hill, valley, etc has its own unique contour. So a system had to be devised to tell, not only the height of the mountain, but also the shape of the mountain. For this, we use "contour lines."

Contour lines are those seemingly endless squiggly brown lines on the map picture. Each of these lines is drawn on an exact elevation on that "terrain feature." The distance between the lines is a representation of the vertical distance between the lines. The vertical distance between the lines is the "contour interval." In our example, the contour interval is 40 feet, which means that between each of those brown lines on the map to the one next to it is an elevation change of 40 feet. But, is it 40 feet up or down? We will get more into this later.
