|Topic: Topographic Map Sheets- Introduction|
|Topographic maps are similar to Forest
Service and Bureau of Land Management (BLM) maps except that they show
the shape or contour of the land. They are primarily useful to SUV
owners who are hiking, hunting, skiing, or doing other sports requiring
The basic features of a topographic map are just like those of a Forest Service map. They contain longitude, latitude, township, and range information along their borders (see blue circles in example above). They show the same township and section scheme as Forest Service maps. See our section "The Federal Township and Range System" for a detailed description of these important map features. They are divided into sections which are numbered just like those on Forest Service maps (red circle)
These maps are single sheets a little less that 2 feet square and fit easily into a shirt pocket. Each map has designations along the sides and in the corners showing the adjacent map names (see magenta circle) They come in various scales. You can buy these maps at many sporting goods stores, survey instrument companies, and off the Internet.
