    Po nts actually determined by the terrestial survey are only points occupied by the instrument and rod; details away from these points are sketches of which the accuracy depends upon the closeness of such points and the experience and ingeniousness of the surveyor. Thus the inexpressive and inexact contour lines as often found on certain topographical maps can although be improved to some extent but can not be altogether eliminated.
