You have purchased an island in the Pacific Ocean. Your job is to construct a topographic map of this location. This island must have a name. If you would like, you can make it a themed island, living community, theme park or whatever you choose.
The map MUST contain a legend (key) and a labeled contour interval, and colored contours.
Your map MUSTalso include the following (at minimum):
Contour lines properly labeled and the proper color (black)
Contour lines are CLOSED (remember – this is an ISLAND) and range from 0 to at LEAST 300m
A consistant contour interval
At least two mountain
At least one depression
At least one river
A body of water (lake)
A least 3 buildings of any kind, your choice
A minimum of one major highway
Add a few secondary roads for transportation
At least 3 other features
Key for colors
Hint: Start with a pencil sketch and decide generally where you want to put everything – and remember from our observations of topographic maps, that it works best when the man-made features are built to go with the topography. Review contour line “rules”.
