CV-14 - Terrain Representation

Learning Objectives: 
  • Describe situations in which methods of terrain representation (e.g., shaded relief, contours,¬†hypsometric tints, block diagrams, profiles) are well suited
  • Create a map that represents both slope and aspect on the same map using the Moellering-Kimerling coloring method
  • Explain how maps that show the landscape in profile can be used to represent terrain
  • Differentiate 3-D representations from 21/2-D representations
  • Describe situations in which methods of terrain representation are poorly suited
