Topographic maps show the three-dimensional surface of the earth in two dimensions using elevation-contour lines. They provide direction, location coordinates, scale, and description of features, such as roads, trails, rails, canals, streams, towns, and political and geographic boundaries. Topographic maps of Utah are produced by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and other federal agencies.
