A topographical map that shows contour lines by elevation, Also three D models


The topographical maps give an idea of the elevations of the terrain.
The closer the lines are together the steeper the slopes. The topographical map gives a clearer understanding of the geography of a region.

Actual 3d maps or models can be constructed to represent the geography of a region. In Yosemite there is a brass model of the valley that shows the cliffs and and water falls of the Valley.
