Contour maps to AutoCAD Conversion
We offer our experience in conversion of contour maps to AutoCAD.
Contour lines connect a series of points of equal elevation and are used to illustrate topography, or relief, on a map.
They show the height of ground above Mean Sea Level (M.S.L.) in either feet or meter and can be drawn at any desired interval. For example, numerous contour lines that are close together indicate hilly or mountainous terrain; when far apart, they represent a gentler slope.
A topographic map is a site map showing the topographic features of a site by way of contour lines.
Conversion of topographic maps. Topographic maps use contour lines to indicate the shape and elevation of these landscape features because it is difficult, as we have already discovered, to show three-dimensional objects, like hills and valleys, on a two-dimensional surface, like a map. Topographic features could include drainage patterns, locations of rock outcroppings, hills and other natural features. The map may also include arTIFFicial features such as buildings, utility locations, detention ponds and other features which would affect engineering design on the site.
Contours lines to AutoCAD. Topographic contour can be shown at almost any interval that is specified by the client. For example, numerous contour lines that are close together indicate hilly or mountainous terrain; when far apart, they represent a gentler slope. In areas of steep terrain, a larger contour interval can show the topography without the crowding of contour lines that would be introduced by a smaller contour interval.
In areas of relatively flat terrain, a smaller contour interval is necessary to show the small changes in topography in a meaningful way.
