Skill
FM/BS-479.V1.02 - Read contours intervals
Skill

Read contour lines using the 2 types contour intervals marked on map:

  • Thinner brown lines representing the places of same height at the minor interval (listed in the map legend)
  • Thicker brown or red lines representing places of same height at the major interval level (5 times the minor interval)

Recognize the gradient (steepness) of the terrain, based on the spread of the contour lines (the closer contour lines are, the steeper the terrain)

Skill

Reads contour lines using the contour intervals marked on map as:

  • The thicker brown lines representing places of same height at the major interval level as shown on the map key (every 5m/10m increase in altitude for example)
  • The thinner brown lines representing the places of same height at the minor interval level as shown on the map key (every 1m/2m increase in altitude for example

Can recognize the gradient (steepness) of their line of travel, based on the spread of the contour lines (more spread out contour lines, means flatter terrain)
