It would depend on the scale of the map. This information would be found in the legend.

How is a contour map used?

Contour maps show elevation. The contour interval tells what the difference is between each contour line is, so lines closer together means a steeper slope, and further apart means a gentler slope.

Every point on a contour line is at a different elevation?

Every point on a given contour line is at the same elevation. Neighboring contour lines are at different elevations.


How is elevation of a point determined on a contour map?

Elevation is determined on a contour map by means of the elevation interval. The distance between each line is equal in distance. Adding the intervals together will determine the total elevation.


What is the elevation between one contour line and the next one on a map?

It depends completely on the type of map and the scale of the map. Look several contour lines above and below the area of interest. Often, the elevation is printed on every 5th contour line. Divide the difference by the number of spaces between the two lines. Example, one contour line says "1000" and the next one with an elevation says "1500". If there are 4 lines in between these two, it is 100 ft per contour line. In some areas, you will need to follow a contour line around the map to track down the elevation of that line. Easier still, check the legend on the side or bottom of the map. The example showing the colors or symbols used may also tell the contour interval if it is consistent for the entire map.

What does a contour line indicate when it points downhill?

When a V-shaped contour line points downhill, it means that the contour line is under very low elevation. And incase your wondering about when the contour line is uphill, it means that the elevation level is very high.
