Title: 3D Topographic Map Simulation
Url: http://www.forgefx.com/casestudies/prenticehall/ph/topo/topo.htm
Publisher: Forge FX Simulations
Description: This interactive simulation illustrates how topographic maps are created and used to depict landforms and changes in elevation. Students can sculpt mountains and valleys using a 3-D model and see the changes to the corresponding topographic map, or make alterations to the map and see how the 3-D terrain model changes. The display can be tilted, rotated, or enlarged to view changes to the map and/or terrain model.
