Sketch Map

 

a rough sketch of an area done in the field, delineating the area’s most important features. A sketch map can also be constructed from a topographical map or an aerial photograph. Reference points are plotted on the sketch map, and the characteristic local features are drawn in perspective in the margins. Information which cannot be conveyed graphically is included in an explanatory note, or legend, which is located in the margins or on the back of the map.
