FM/BS-478.V2.01 - Recognise points of elevation & hill numbers
Skill

Recognise points of elevation and hill numbers:

  • 2 or 3-digit numbers on the tops of hills are known as hill numbers and should be referenced as ‘Hill xxx’
  • The zoom scale of the map affects whether some of these numbers are visible (specifically the smaller/minor hills).
  • In mountainous or hilly terrain there may be multiple hills with the same number. In these circumstances, provide additional context, such as a grid reference to ensure clarity of communication.
