Contour Map

A CONTOUR MAP IN COLOR

Here's a map of the area that shows not only the lake, but the surrounding hills and ridges. It's based on U.S. Geological Survey topographic maps (20 of them stitched together). But instead of showing elevation by contour lines, this rendering uses shades of green. The lighter the green, the higher the elevation. Notice all the hundreds of creeks that flow into the lake.


I'll be using the same technology to produce some three-dimensional maps of the lake area. They'll be posted under this same topic heading, so check back from time to time and I'll think you'll be surprised and impressed.
