Utilizing the 1:2500 base map, as well as other sources such as google earth and Zmaps, http://www.zonums.com/gmaps/digipoint.html generate landscape units based on: a. sub-drainage basins, b. slope, c. vegetation. Examples: 2. Select 4-5 typical transects (sections) through the sub-basins that in your opinion represent common conditions. These should include north-south and east-west. Draw these sections at a 1:250 scale (1cm =2.5m) Make sure to include transition zones and edge conditions
