topographic maps

Subject Source: Art & Architecture Thesaurus
Scope Note: Refers to maps representing a region at a level of detail or scale between a plan, which is a small area, and a chorographic map, which is a large regional map. Topographic maps include accurate representations of the location and shape of both natural and man-made features. The term refers to maps of various scales in different nations; it is generally limited to maps at scales of 1:500,000 or larger in the United States, but it often refers to scales of 1:1,000,000 or larger in Russia. The term is often mistakenly interpreted to mean maps that only represent natural relief features.
