Trivia Question

What is the "Spot Elevation"

at the indicated point on the map?


Click the Picture for the Answer

Contour Lines.JPG (62696 bytes)

Click to Enlarge Picture


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 are a presentation 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.
