What is relief on a map?
Relief is the elevation of the areas of the map.
a relief map is a map which shows the map with coastal lines
what are the separate colors on a relief map?
high relief map is a map with a lot of mountains, or a lot of different elevations.
it's a topography map or topographical map! whichever way you spin it, it is a map that shows relief.
The political map shows the borders of the countries and the relief one shows the landscape.
The relief of an area on a map is the difference between the highest point and the lowest point. You find relief by finding the highest and lowest numbers on a contour map, then you subtract those numbers.
I dont know what a relief map shows thats why im asking this question on here
A relief map or contour map is another name for a topographical map.
this map is called the thematic map
Total relief is the difference in elevation between the highest and lowest points on the map.
A relief map is a map designed to show land that isn't flat. It does so by showing various lines and colours to indicate height.
A color shaded relief map is designed to show high and low elevations of a given area.
A topographic map.
On a topographic map, relief is the representation of the shapes of hills, valleys, streams, and other terrain surfaces as depicted by the mapmaker.
http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_is_the_difference_between_an_elevation_map_and_a_relief_map An elevation map depicts the topology of the surface without regard for illumination effects. A relief map depicts the topology of the surface with regard to illumination effects. Certain types of maps combine both elevation and relief shadings to create a composite or visually pleasing appearance of the surface. An elevation map has no slope shading, only elevation shading. A relief map incorporates slope shading. The most common standard attribute of relief shading is… Read More
i think a relief map is a boke apart map
A Relief map is a Physical map that uses shading to show differences in elevation.
Which map is better for showing the height of a mountain above sea level an elevation map or a relief map?
Both will show the elevation. But a relief map, with its colouring and hatching may be easier for a novice to read. I prefer to view contour lines on a less cluttered map.
A political world map is designed simply to show the positions of different countries/territories and their borders. A relief geographical map shows differences in the Earth's terrain, such as mountains and valleys.
A relief map shows mountains, rivers, valleys, elevation, etc. A political map shows human-defined boundaries such as imaginary lines between cities, states, countries, etc.
The relief is the difference between the highest and lowest contour line.
What is the relationship between the relief of an area and the contour interval on a map of the area?
The Relationship between the relief of an area and the contour interval on a map of the area is A contour line
It is a shaded relief map.
The type of topographical map referred to is known as a relief map or raised-relief map. These maps use shadowing to simulate texture and terrain three-dimensionally.
Relief in this context means the height contours. Different heights on a relief map may be shown as different colours.
Contour line connect points of equal elevation on a map, whereas relief is the difference in elevation from the highest and lowest on a map.
A map that can be made with a raised surface is a called a raised relief map. They are 3 dimensional.
A relief map shows changes of elevation in the terrain. Sometimes this is done in 2D. The 2D maps use lines and rings to represent terrain on the map. Relief maps are often done in 3D. The map is raised in an actual depiction of the terrain. The mountains, valleys, rivers, and other features will be raised and lowered in scale with each other to give an image of how they actually appear.

Relief Maps are a type of physical map that show changes in elevation ,GS
I believe it is a topography map... NO, Relief Map
It is an example of an special purpose map, because it has a special purpose or theme
Which map is better for showing the height of a mountain above sea level an elevation map or relief map?
An elevation map would be better because an elevation map measures height.
It usually refers to the terrain of the place. For example, plain, plateau, mountain, hill etc. are forms of relief.
in topographic maps we find local areas in relief map we find things like mountain valley etc, well, the answer above is wrong the difference between the two is that a topography map has lines on it to show elevation and releif maps have colors to show elevation.
A three dimensional map of terrain is called a raised relief map.
Examples of compound nouns are: relief map footrace groundhog
If you were looking for a place to build a new downhill ski area what type of map would be most helpful?
A relief map.
the relief features of a place
such a map is a three dimensional representation of the terrain
A relief map differs from an ordinary map in that it shows hills and valleys with shading rather than the standard contour lines you would get on an OS Map. So the purpose of them is to make it easier for people to get an idea of what the terrain is like realtively quickly. With a relief map it is much easier to visualise the terrain. Contour lines are more specific and are generally used… Read More
a map showing the relief features of the Earth's surface, by means of contour lines, to show changes in elevation
It depends on the map. On a political map they would show different countries. On a relief map they would show hills and mountains. On a thematic map they would display data.
Colors, shading, and contour lines.
the diference between the highest hight and lowest hight
the detailed mapping of the configuration and relief features of a region
the distance between a high and low place on a map
