A map with contour lins that shows elevation of the earth's surface is a?
it is a topographic map
A contour interval shows a change in elevation on a topographical map. If the contour interval is 20 then the elevation change between two contour lines is 20 meters
An isoline is a contour line that portays elevation in terms of slopes, pits, and peaks. A contour map, such as a topographic map, shows hills, valleys, and the steepness of various slopes.
elevation above mean sea level
A contour map is a physical map showing elevation and each line shows a major change in elevation.
A line on the map that shows areas of the same elevation.
A Topographic Map includes contour lines drawn to represent changes in elevation.The most important thing to remember is that CLOSE contour lines mean STEEP terrain and OPEN contour lines mean FLAT terrain.
There are various maps that show elevation. A physical map shows elevation changes with different colors and shades. A topographic map also shows elevation but with contour lines instead of colors and shading. A thematic map may also show elevation, but elevation is usually in the background, and not important to the map itself.
Hachured lines, which are little ticks pointing downslope on a contour line, symbolize a depression. This shows that the elevation is now decreasing.
The contour lines on a topographic map shows elevation typically above mean sea level (MSL).
Contour lines show elevation differences on topographic maps. On other maps, a coloured grid can show changes in elevation (these are called digital elevation models or DEMs).
A geologic map shows rock types making up earths surface.
What is the type of map that shows land in three dimension using contour lines indicating elevation?
Elevation It shows how tall it it by usually showing different colors! Hope this helped
A topographic map shows the three dimensions of the earths surface.

A topographic map shows detailed contour lines marking elevation, but most physical maps also show elevations by color scale.
A contour map is a map that show counter lines. explanation- It shows land height by means of places with the same elevation. The counter lines indicate how steeply the land rises or falls
1) DEM (Digital Elevation Model) This is a shaded image where each shade from white to black (for example) represents a certain elevation. Contour lines can be determined and overlayed on top of the DEM though the use GIS software. 2) Topographic Map This is a type of map that displays contour lines, the spacing of which denotes slope. Every 5th contour line is numbered with the elevation along that line.
A topographic map
A geologic map shows rock types making up earths surface.
Acontour line (also level set, isopleth, isoline, isogram or isarithm) of a function of two variables is a curve along which the function has a constant value. In cartography, a contour line (often just called a "contour") joins points of equal elevation (height) above a given level, such as mean sea level. A contour map is a map illustrated with contour lines, for example a topographic map, which thus shows valleys and hills, and the… Read More

Topography shows elevation and surface features. It has had an affect on human life because now, with topography, we know where elevation is and how high it is.
A contour map, shows lines of equal elevation which look like tree rings all over the map, and is used to show elevation as well as slope and gradient information. The closer the lines are together, the steeper the terrain is in relative terms.
A topographical map shows elevation.
topographic maps show elevation slope and relief. a physical map shows the features of earths landmasses using texture. hope this help!
the type of map that shows elevation is called an elevation map. elevation maps are used for showing how high the land is.
No, contour map shows the topography of the land i.e different levels of the ground surface while road map shows road for travelling purpose. However one can think of combining both the map data to form one map.
a countour map shows elevation, while YOU should find out what a special purpose map is. It's not that hard. try google.

Your question is very broad, but I will attempt to answer it. If I don't give you the answer you are looking for, then perhaps you can resubmit it, with a more specifics. Please see the related link Generally, we obtain information from a contour map (a map with contour lines). The most common map is an elevation map, showing the height of a surface above a common datum (usually sea level). However, many types… Read More
The land is steep if the contour lines are close together
A contour chart is a map that shows contour lines. A good example of this is a topographic map.
Topographical maps indicate elevation.
This is called a "Topographical Map". It shows a lot more than just the shape of the Earth.
an elevation map shows you the different heights of a certain area
An elevation map shows a ' birds eye view ' and often has different colors to show the difference in elevation, and a profile map shows elevation from the side. Like a ' profile ' picture.
What map that shows the layout of the roads in a city with no information about elevation is called?
what map that shows the layout of the roads in a city with no informatoin about elevation is called
Contour lines are lines that join up points on a map that represent points on Earth's surface that have equal height. The distance between the contour lines gives an indication of how much the height changes over a horizontal distance. In other words it shows you how steep or gentle the slope is. As such a steep slope will be marked by closely spaced contour lines and a more gentle slope will have more widely… Read More
An elevation Map is a map that shows how high (the elevation) something is (mountain, hills, land-forms, etc.)
