The topographic map exercise uses tools that the students may have had some exposure to, surface maps, and forces them to view it in a more critical manner. They are asked to use maps of different types and representing different landscapes to answer a series of questions. It teaches them to identify the information the map provides and to read the topographic contours to understand how they relate to the real-world surface. The principles of interpolation and contouring are addressed as students create their own topographic map from a set of elevation points. Students are introduced to the idea of a topographic profile, which they will be using throughout the course in later lab exercises and field experiences.
