What Is a Contour Interval Calculator?
A Contour Interval Calculator is a tool used to calculate the vertical distance between contour lines on a topographic map. Contour lines represent points of equal elevation on the terrain, and the contour interval is the difference in elevation between adjacent contour lines.
Why Use a Contour Interval Calculator?
Using a Contour Interval Calculator is helpful for cartographers, geographers, surveyors, and outdoor enthusiasts who work with topographic maps.
It allows them to determine an appropriate contour interval that accurately represents the elevation changes of the land being mapped.
