Field Value – whatever aspect of the field that you choose to measure. Ex. Temp, pressure, density, rainfall, snowfall, elevation, etc.
Isolines – lines that connect points of equal field value.
Field Map- A map made of isolines that show a pattern of data and allow us to predict any location on the map.
Interval- the value of increase/decrease for each isoline.
Gradient = change in field value
change in distance
