1. Describe how you could find the contour interval of a topo-map without looking at the printed value.
2. Follow your own directions for finding the contour interval of a topo-map on Gods Pocket Peak map. Does your calculation match the interval printed value?
3. In Google Earth, navigate to two or three parts of the country that are very flat and determine the contour interval at each place using the same method you used in the previous question. How do these values compare to the contour interval for Gods Pocket Peak?
4, Based on what you’ve seen so far, does a higher contour interval indicate more rugged terrain or flatter terrain?
