How to read it

The lines on the map each mean a change in the elevation the number on it are the miles above sea level, The little lines in between are minor changes on the map level above sea level can be seen by subtracting the 2 bigger lines between it and then counting the lines between it and the divide it by the number you got subtracted.The you have the number for each line that is being added count how much little lines it goes up and add it by the bigger line.
