A map that shows the change in value of a variable over a geographic area through the use of contour lines. For example, a contour map of elevation has lines that trace points of equal elevation across the map. See also: contour line and topographic map.
A map showing the intensity of radiation as a function of position. Each contour line corresponds to a specific intensity of radiation, with inner contours corresponding to higher intensities than outer contours. Therefore, a closed contour encircles a region where the intensity of the emitted radiation is greater than or equal to the intensity on the contour line. The contours outline the shape of the emitting source.
a topographic map which portrays relief by means of lines which connect points of equal elevation.
An elevation map in which lines connect points of equal elevation.
A map that displays the topography of a site. A map with contour lines that indicate various elevations.
a map having contour lines through points of equal elevation
a map illustrated with contour lines
a map showing contour lines
a map showing many contourlines
a model of a given section of land that uses lines to show constant heights above sea level
a special type of isoline map
A map having lines of equal elevation that represent the land surface (Topographic).
(see Topographic map)
map showing characteristics or different elevations of an area; a series of contour lines shows different elevations
yield map that combines dots of the same intensity/yield level by interpolating (or kriging).
A broadcast coverage map showing the quality of reception possible on the basis of signal strength.
A map that shows the configuration of a surface by means of contour lines drawn at regular intervals of elevation ("contour intervals") above a reference level.
A map that has lines marked to indicate points or areas that are the same elevation above or below sea level. often used to depict subsurface features.
a map in which a series of lines connects points of equal elevation.
