Topographic Maps

Topographic maps give a reader much detail about terrain than other maps. Unlike a regular map, a topo map can show features on the ground, both manmade and natural. These maps help all sorts of people plan events and projects that would otherwise require physically inspecting the area. Tourist use topographic maps to explore the area they plan to visit.

Satellite Imagery

Satellite images show and store a lot of information. The light spectrum they use can be manipulated to pick up very minute detail and phenomenon on the earth's surface. For example, archaeologists can use them to locate subtle variations in soils to find potential sites. Or, environmentalists can use them to detect variations in vegetation and moisture.

Terrain Maps

Terrain maps, or raised relief Maps are superior visual references that give a good perspective of an area. Not only do these maps show you the beauty of the land, these maps also use color and shading to represent elevation changes so you get a better understanding of the terrain and landforms. A terrain map is also a great educational tool, showing how the overlayed map information relates to the form of the land.
