    Controversial theories onthe origin of various landforms are omitted, and a practical, objec-tive approach is maintained throughout. An outstanding feature of the book is the wealth of excellent illustrations, including topographic maps, vertical and oblique aerial photographs, and block diagrams. All illus-.

Topographic maps are 2-dimensional representations of the 3-dimensional surface features of an area. Topographic maps have contour lines that connect points of identical elevation above sea level. Contour lines run next to each other. Adjacent contour lines are separated by a constant difference in elevation, usually noted on the map.

Essential Learning Outcomes. Topographic maps are based on topographical surveys. Performed at large scales, these surveys are called topographical in the old sense of topography, showing a variety of elevations and landforms. This is in contrast to older cadastral surveys, which primarily show property and governmental first multi-sheet topographic map series of an entire country, the Carte géométrique.

This book, which exemplifies Dr. Keser's long standing interest in aerial photograph interpretation, was originally prepared as a supplement to the British Columbia Forest Land Classification System.
