Field: Any area which has measurable value of a given quantity at every point

Field maps can show levels of:

- Atmospheric Pressure

- Temperature

- Elevation

- Pollutants

Isolinesare lines that connect points of equal value.


Rules for drawing isolines

Rules for Drawing Isolines:

1. Isolines connect points of equal value.

Rules for Drawing Isolines:

2. Isolines are gentle, curving lines- no sharp corners.

Rules for Drawing Isolines:

3. Isolines are always closed curves even though the map might only show part of it.

4. Isolines NEVER cross!!

This would mean that one point has two different values. Ex: one spot has two temperatures?

Gradient: Change in field value distanceExample: 12oC temperature change between two locations that are 3 km apart


Compare the gradient between points a and b to the gradient between points e and f

Compare the gradient between points A and B to the gradient between points E and F


Contour interval difference between adjacent contour lines how much lines go up by

Contour Interval: difference between adjacent contour lines (how much lines go up by)
