1.On the Mt Kit Carson map the contour interval is ____________?
2.Previous the Cheney 1:24000 map had a contour interval of 10 ft. Why would remaking the Mt Kit Carson map at the same scale with a 10 ft contour interval be a bad idea? What would it look like?
What is the highest point on the Mt Kit Carson 1:24000 map and what is its elevation in feet?
Hay Ridge, 4550 ft
Mt Kit Carson, 5282 ft
Mt Spokane, 5883 ft
Mt Kit Carson, 5400 ft
264.7Mt Kit Carson on the Mt Kit Carson 1:24000map is the high point, what is its elevation in feet?
5282ft 3205m 6530 ft 5057 ft
If you transit almost due north of Mt Kit Carson elevation 5282 (for ~0.85 miles) you end up on Day Mtn what is its elevation?
1206 ft 5057 ft 7608 ft 5285ft
Note both high points have benchmarks with elevations listed!
Now let’s find the gradient between those two high points. Gradient = Rise/Run
see the image for question 4 number 2 at the file below
So for this example, the gradient would be .5/1 (gradient = slope) remember y=mx+b it’s them!!!)
First, you will have to find the Rise (Elevation of Mt Kit Carson – Elevation of Day
560 m 340 ft 15 ft 225ft
Then using the 0.85 miles (Run) distance please record the gradient in ft/mile? (Remember Gradient = Rise/Run) 550 ft /mile 255m/km 265ft/mile 9ft/mile
Instead of going north by 0.85 miles of Mt kit Carson if you descended south by 0.85 miles the gradient transited would be _____________________ than that of your previous northern outing?
National Map Mt Kit Carson
The National Map is also great for looking at slope steepness and slope aspect. Here is an explainer to help you use the tools on the national map to help answer these questions
Little Deer Creek flows from _____________ to ______________ in the central portion of the Mt Kit Carson map.
East , West
West , East
Locate the Daybreak mine (Dahl Claim – former uranium mine on the western slope of the Mt Kit Carson map. ***It will say DayBreak there are other unnamed mines on the map*** Into which creek would rainwater landing on the tailings (ground-up rock mined but having no economic value) pile flow?
North Fork Little Deep Creek
South Fork Little Deep Creek
Little Deer Creek
Please write TWO observations about the topographic features housed on the Mt Kit Carson map.
EG: NE-SW trending elongate lakes in the central portion of map area ***** (this is not an answer but would have been good for Cheney map)
