What does a valley look like on a topographic map?

How do you represent a hill on a map?

Four Different Ways To Draw Hills On A Map

1. Draw hills with simple lines showing the slope.
3. Use overlay layers to add form to the hills.
4. Use lines to pick out the form of the hills from a 3/4 perspective.
5. Use overlay layers to shad your hills and give them form.

## How do you find the hill on a map?

Remember contour numbering reads up hill – in other words the top of the number is uphill and the bottom is downhill. Also remember the closer contour lines are together, the steeper the slope.

### What is depression on a topographic map?

Depressions. Contour lines that show a depression, crater, or sinkhole on a map are represented by dashed lines (hachure marks) on the inside of a contour line. The elevation of the first depression contour is the same as the nearest regular contour line.

The saddle between two hills (or mountains) is the region surrounding the highest point of the lowest point on the line tracing the drainage divide (the col) connecting the peaks.
