What is a Topographic Map? represent lines of equal elevation above (or below) a reference datum. To visualize what a contour line represents, picture a mountain (or any other topographic feature) and imagine slicing through it with a perfectly flat, horizontal piece of glass.

Topographic maps are general reference maps showing coastlines, cities, and rivers that use contour lines to show elevation differences. Such maps are helpful to hikers because they can show elevation changes along a trail. Government agencies like the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) produce these maps that are often based on satellite data or aerial photography.

Isoline (also called isopleth) maps use lines to connect points of equal value, such as temperature, rainfall, or elevation. Lines of equal temperature are called isotherms, lines of equal rainfall are called isohyets, and lines of equal elevation are called contours. Contour lines are often used on topographic maps.
