Hypsography (Topographic Contours) - 1:100,000 Scale

SDE Feature Class

Description

North Dakota hypsography (topographic contours) from US Geological Survey 1:100,000 quadrangle maps

Summary

Compilation of North Dakota hypsographic contours

Credits

US Geological Survey, ND State Water Commission - final compilation and quad appends

Use limitations

Some of the elevation values in the elevation item are left as zero when they should actually have a value. The contour lines that have a value of zero are areas where several contours coincide and therefore represent multiple elevational values. Please see the major and minor codes for more details as to what those elevations are.

Overview Description
Entity and Attribute Overview
USGS DLG Major and Minor codes are included so if questions exist in classified descriptions, the original codes can be perused to determine classification accuracies. Some of the hypsography linework has no elevational value due to those lines representing more than one elevation. See the major and minor codes for all of the elevations.
