Our interactive contour quizzes aim to help improve your understanding of contours.
New May 2020 - This won't work on all computers and browsers but if it does it's more modern than the older quizzes and works on touchscreens (will use up to 80MB mobile data but can be installed for offline use). It uses 3D models of real terrain.
There's a tutorial to help get started and if you find it too difficult watch out for hints at the bottom of the page when you get one wrong. If it's too easy you can change various settings on the Settings page to make it more challenging and get higher scores.
- 3D terrain model contour map matching
These are the older quizzes which should work on more computers and browsers but don't support touchscreen:
- Contour Quiz 1 - Match contours to 3D landform
- Contour Quiz 2 - Match contours to profile
- Contour Quiz 3 - Match contours to 3D landform
- Contour Quiz 4 - Match contours to 3D landform
As your skills improve, you can alter the time limit on the exercises to make them more challenging.
