CIVL 1009 Survey (2010-2011 Semester 1) Chapter 1 Differential Levelling 65 Contouring Definition • A contour is a line drawn on a plan joining all points of the same height above or below a datum (equal altitude) • Contours cannot cross, split or join other contours, except in the case of an overhang, e.g. a cliff • The height between successive contours is called the vertical interval or the contour interval • Value of contour interval depends on the variation in height of the area being contoured • The contour interval is kept constant for a plan or map • The plan spacing between contour line indicates the steepness of slopes • Closely spaced lines indicates a steep gradient • Widely spaced lines indicates a flattened gradient
