**1. What is the name of the quadrangle?**

This quadrangle is called the BEVERLY HILLS QUADRANGLE, CALIFORNIA-LOS ANGELES CO. 7.5 MINUTE SERIES (TOPOGRAPHIC)

**2. What are the names of the adjacent quadrangles?**

The names of the adjacent quadrangles are Canoga Park, Van Nuys, Burbank, Topanga, Hollywood, Venice, and Inglewood.

**3. When was the quadrangle first created?**

This quadrangle was compiled in 1966, the imagery in 1978, and inspected in 1995.

**4. What datum was used to create your map?**

The National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929 was used to create this map. There are also datum from the North American Datum of 1927 and 1983.

**5. What is the scale of the map?**

The Scale of this map is 1:24,000

**6. At the above scale, answer the following:**

**a) 5 centimeters on the map is equivalent to how many meters on the ground?**

[(5centimeters on map)x(24000centimeters on ground)]/[100meters on ground] = 1200 meters on ground

**b) 5 inches on the map is equivalent to how many miles on the ground?**

[(5 inches on the map)x(24000 inches on the ground)]/[(12 inches per foot) (5280 feet in a mile)] = 1.8939 miles

**c) one mile on the ground is equivalent to how many inches on the map?**

[1 mile on the ground]/[(24000 miles on map)(5280 feet per mile)(2.54 inches per foot)] = 3.319 x 10^8

**d) three kilometers on the ground is equivalent to how many centimeters on the map?**

[(3km on the ground)/(3x24000 km on the map)(1000 meters in a km)(100 cm in 1 meter)] = 4.166 x 10^-10 centimeters on the map

**7. What is the contour interval on your map?**

The contour interval of this map is 20 feet.

1,000,000 sq meters

**13. Obtain elevation measurements, from west to east along the UTM northing 3771000, where the eastings of the**

**UTM grid intersect the northing. Create an elevation profile using these measurements in Excel (hint: create a line**

**chart). Figure out how to label the elevation values to the two measurements on campus. Insert your elevation**

**profile**
