Points A, B, C, D and X represent locations on the map. Elevations are measured in feet. Map #1 1. What is the elevation of each of the following points? A. ________________ B. ________________ C. _______________ D. ________________ 2. What is the contour interval of this map? _________________ 3. What is the gradient between C and D? ___________________ Gradient = Change in field value/Distance SHOW WORK: 5. In what direction does Fish Creek Flow? ___________________ 6. What is the elevation of Point X? ________________________ 7. Which cross section best represents the profile along straight line AB? _______________ 8. Which side of Rock Mountain is the steepest (compass direction)? _________________________ 9. Which side of Rock Mountain has the gentlest slope (compass direction)? _____________________ Map #2 1. Using the topographic map above and the grid below, construct a topographic profile along line AB, by plotting a point for the elevation of each contour line that crossed line AB and connecting points with a smooth, curved line. Map #3 Using the following features below, label the map:
