The Map Terrain

In my previous blog, I looked at the cross-section view of the swale. In this blog, we will look at the 2-foot contour Geographic Information System (GIS) mapping of Mercer Square available from the City of Fredericksburg .  I provide the previous photographs, the terrain and the location of where the particular view is taken.


Mercer & Littlepage – Topo #1

Alley between Wolfe and Charlotte – Topo #4


Wolfe and Littlepage – Topo #5


Alley between Lafayette and Wolfe – Topo #6

In the next blog we will pull all of my initial investigation together concerning the Swale at Mercer Square.
