Create a profile of a cross section through a terrain using a topographic map and a digital elevation model (DEM)
Measure point-feature movement and point-feature diffusion on maps
Describe maps that can be used to find direction, distance, or position, plan routes, calculate area or volume, or describe shape
Explain how maps can be used in determining an optimal route or facility selection
Explain how maps can be used in terrain analysis (e.g., elevation determination, surface profiles, slope, viewsheds, and gradient)
Explain how the types of distortion indicated by projection metadata on a map will affect map measurements
Explain the differences between true north, magnetic north, and grid north directional references
Compare and contrast the manual measurement of the areas of polygons on a map printed from a GIS with those calculated by the computer and discuss the implications these variations in measurement might have on map use
Determine feature counts of point, line, and area features on maps
Analyze spatial patterns of selected point, line, and area feature arrangements on maps
Calculate slope using a topographic map and a DEM
Calculate the planimetric and actual road distances between two locations on a topographic map
Plan an orienteering tour of a specific length that traverses slopes of an appropriate steepness and crosses streams in places that can be forded based on a topographic map
Describe the differences between azimuths, bearings, and other systems for indicating directions
