# Map 2 Crater Lake Oregon What Is The Fractional Scale Of This Map What Is The Co

Map 2: Crater Lake, Oregon

1. What is the fractional scale of this map?
1. What is the contour interval of this map?
1. What is the average elevation of the water in Crater Lake? (NOTE: Elevation of water bodies are written in in the center of the water body. Don’t forget to include the units!)
1. What is the elevation of Applegate Peak? (NOTE: This peak is located on the southern rim of Crater Lake.)
1. Locate Highway 62 on the map. It is to the southwest of Crater Lake. If you were driving east along Highway 62, would you look up to or down on Crater Lake?
1. Observe the streams that surround Crater Lake. What type of drainage pattern do you see – is it Dendritic, Trellis or Radial? (NOTE: If you have trouble identifying the drainage pattern, it is often easier to see them if you highlight them in a bright color so they stand out better.)
1. For this question, please explain why this pattern is occurs around Crater Lake. You need to provide a detailed argument based on the evidence you see in the map to support your answer from Question 6.

Map 3: Lamesa, Texas

1. What is the fractional scale of this map?
1. What is the contour interval of this map?
1. Look at the western edge of the map and the eastern edge of the map. Which side (West or East) has the higher average elevation? (NOTE: To determine the elevations on this map, you will need to look at the contour lines. The major contour lines are labeled, so you can use these labels and the contour interval to extrapolate the elevations of the unlabeled contours.)
1. Observe the streams on this map. What type of drainage pattern do you see – is it Dendritic, Trellis or Radial? (NOTE: If you have trouble identifying the drainage pattern, it is often easier to see them if you highlight them in a bright color so they stand out better.)
1. For this question, please explain why this pattern is occurring in this location. You need to provide a detailed argument based on the evidence you see in the map to support your answer from Question 4.
