What is a Topographic Map?

A topographic map is a two-dimensional map that identifies the location, height, and size of natural and man-made features on a parcel of land. Depending on the area being surveyed, this could include: 

  • Buildings, parking lots, utilities and other site improvements
  • Mountains, valleys, and slopes
  • Lakes, rivers, creeks, and ponds
  • Areas of wooded vegetation
  •  Roads, bridges, railways, trails, and landmarks
  • Administrative, geographical, or recreational boundaries
  • The names of cities, mountains, bodies of water, or boundaries

Topographic surveys and mapping also mark the differences in elevation, which are shown using contour lines. 

Topographic maps, along with boundary surveys, are invaluable for civil engineering and architectural designs. They’re particularly useful for areas that can’t be surveyed by aerial topography. Using a topographic map, architects and engineers can easily identify areas of land that are unsuitable for development and construction. This includes identifying areas that may be too steep, too wet, subject to mudslides, or other issues that could impact nearby buildings or structures. 

How Are Topographic maps used?

Topographic maps are typically used for:

  • Assessing an area of land for development and construction
  • Visualizing how the land looks before and after construction has been completed
  • Determining which areas might be difficult to build on or require leveling
  • Determining the potential impact on construction from higher slopes
  • Understanding what needs to be done to mold the land to reach project goals

Ground topography surveys are often required by Napa government agencies for a wide variety of projects, including:

  • Land development
  • New construction
  • Renovations to existing structures
  • Infrastructure improvements 
  • Utility design
  • Grading or drainage projects.
  • Residential site improvements
