This site features several Flash animations that illustrate the concept of isopleths, or contour lines of equal value. Most of the animations are interactive and allow the user to interpret contour spacing, hachured lines, and valley/ridge placement. One animation allows the user to practice drawing contour lines. These resources are suitable for use in lectures, labs, or other teaching activities. ... Full description.
