What do dots and dashes represent on a map?

1. A dash equals three dots. 2. A dot equals 1. -------------------------------------------------------------- Morse code is a method of transmitting text information as a series of on-off tones, lights, or clicks that can be directly understood by a skilled listener or observer without special equipment. traditional it is sent as "dots" and "dashes" where dots are short tones or periods and dashes are long tones or periods. Letters of the alphabet (and numbers 0-9) are given…
I think you are talking about Lewis dot structures. A dot represents an electron. We pair the dots because only two electrons can share the same orbital. A dash represents a two-electron bond between atoms. Two dashes represent a double bond; three dashes represent a triple bond.

It is also worth noting that while we read these letters on a page as dots and dashes, Morse code was transmitted using sounds, little bursts of electricity that came out sounding like "dit" (the sound for the letter E) or "da-dit" (the sound for the letter N) or "dah" (the letter T). Every letter of the alphabet had its own unique sound, and that made Morse code difficult to learn. But eventually, a modification…
Morse's original code used dots, dashes, long dashes, very long dashes, and 5 different gap lengths. The International Morse Code that replaced it simplified this to just dots, dashes and 3 different gap lengths. Electromechanical and Electronic "automatic" keys that timed the dots, dashes, and gaps for the operator were eventually introduced, significantly reducing operator workload and increasing sending code speed while reducing the frequency of sending errors.
On a topographic map dashed lines can represent boundaries (e.g. national, state, etc). A dashed line can also represent a hiking trail or a telephone, or above-ground oil or gas line.The color and length of the dashes can distinguish between one type and another. Check the map legend to understand the exact meaning.
It is used in the military, often referred to as "dots and dashes." It uses a sequence of blinking lights or short/long taps. Samuel Morse devised the code to send messages along wires. The dots and dashes were arranged to represent each letter ( A= .- E=. T=- etc.). The wires paralleled the railroads, originally, and the railroad station was where most people went to send "wires" or telegrams.
