A map that shows the change in elevation over a geographic area through the use of contour lines. The contour lines trace points of equal elevation across the map. See also: contour line and contour map.
A map showing the features on the earthâ€™s surface in accuracy and details appropriate to the map scale. A standard topographic maps will show a number of different themes of data - eg contours, water features, cultural features (roads, buildings, etc)
a map that uses contour lines and symbols to show the surface features of a particular area, including natural features (mountains, valleys, water, etc) and human-made features (roads, buildings, bridges, etc)
A class of map designed primarily for the purpose of depicting elevation (relief), as opposed to a planimetric map which only shows the horizontal location of geographic features. Topographic maps show vertical data with contour lines, hypsometric tints, spot heights, and relief shading. Also shown is fundamental information about the Earth's surface such as landforms, vegetation, and drainage. Cultural and landmark features, such as roads, railways, populated places, and buildings are often included. Topographic maps are usually available as a series, such as the 1:50 000 and 1:250 000 scale National Topographic System (NTS) maps, produced by the Centre for Topographic Information ( URL), Geomatics Canada, Natural Resources Canada.
a map which presents both the vertical and horizontal positions of the features represented.

A systematic representation of a small part of the land surface showing physical features (eg. relief, hydrography), and cultural features (eg. roads, administrative boundaries). These large-scale maps present both vertical and horizontal features in measurable form.
1. A map containing contours indicating lines of equal surface elevation (relief), often referred to as topo maps. 2. Often used to refer to a map sheet published by the U.S. Geological Survey in the 7.5-minute quadrangle series or the 15-minute quadrangle series.
A map showing the topographic features of a land surface generally by means of contour lines. Torpor Considerably reduced metabolic rate with subsequent slow breathing and heart rate; body temperature drops down near the ambient temperature.
Topographic maps are a variety of map characterized by large-scale detail and quantitative representation of relief, usually using contour lines in modern mapping, but historically using a variety of methods. Traditional definitions require a topographic map to show both natural and man-made features,"A topographic map is a detailed and accurate graphic representation of cultural and natural features on the ground." http://maps.nrcan.gc.ca/topo101/faq_e.php Centre for Topopgraphic Information - Topographic Maps: Frequently Asked Questions "Traditionally, the main division of maps is into topographic and thematic maps. Topographic maps supply a general image of the earth's surface: roads, rivers, buildings, often the nature of the vegetation, the relief and the names of the various mapped objects."
A topographic map is the ordered projection of one brain structure onto another, such as retinotopy, the ordered projection of the retina onto the lateral geniculated nucleus of the thalamus, and then onto the primary visual cortex, or somatotopy, the ordered projection of the body surface onto the primary sensory cortex.
