Description

Topographic maps, including the USGS 7.5 Minute Series of Topographic Maps, are introduced, and the "La Mesa Quadrangle" is used as an example. Angular measure is broken down into degrees, minutes, and seconds. The "Township and Range System" is introduced as a response to the spherical nature of our planet. The stage is set to discuss "isoline" mapping.
