Abstract

Contour maps visually represent elevation information throughcontour lines, aiding in the interpretation of the landscape's features and characteristics. QGIS is introduced as a valuable tool for generating contour maps due to its accessibility, versatility, and extensive range of features. The step-by-step process of using QGIS for contour map generation, begins with data acquisition, encompassing the importation of elevation data from various sources and ensuring its quality. QGISsupports different data formats, facilitating seamless integration of data from diverse origins. further describes the process of contour line creation using QGIS's contouring algorithms, which extract elevation values and generate smooth and continuous contour lines. Adjusting parameters allows for the customization of contour intervals, offering control over the level of detail in the resulting maps. the application of QGIS in contour map generation providessignificant advantages for researchers,professionals, and decision-makers in various disciplines. QGIS's user-friendly interface, broad range of tools, and efficient processing capabilities make it a valuable tool for generating precise and informative contour maps. The utilization of QGIS enhances spatial understanding and supports informed decision-making in fields that rely on accurate terrain analysis.
