A map is a representation of the Earth, or part of it.  The distinctive characteristic of a topographic map is that the shape of the Earth's surface is shown by contour lines.  Contours are imaginary lines that join points of equal elevation on the surface of the land above or below a reference surface, such as mean sea level.  Contours make it possible to measure the height of mountains, depths of the ocean bottom, and steepness of slopes.

A topographic map shows more than contours.  The map includes symbols that represent such features as streets, buildings, streams, and vegetation.  These symbols are constantly refined to better relate the features they represent.  It takes over 1,500 1:24,000 maps to cover the entire state of Nebraska.  The Nebraska Maps & More Store stocks them all in our store.  We offer them as free downloadable files here:
