Note: Refers to maps representing a region at a level of detail or scale between a plan, which is a small area, and a chorographic map, which is a large regional map. Topographic maps include accurate representations of the location and shape of both natural and manmade features. The term refers to maps of various scales in different nations; it is generally limited to maps at scales of 1:500,000 or larger in the United States, but it often refers to scales of 1:1,000,000 or larger in Russia. The term is often mistakenly interpreted to mean maps that only represent natural relief features.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Verwijst naar kaarten die een regio weergeven op een schaal die ligt tussen die van een plattegrond (die een klein gebied weergeeft) en een chorografische kaart (een grote regionale kaart). Topografische kaarten bevatten nauwkeurige weergaven van de locatie en vorm van zowel natuurlijke als door mensen aangebrachte kenmerken. De term verwijst naar kaarten die in verschillende landen verschillende schalen kunnen hebben, en is in de Verenigde Staten meestal beperkt tot kaarten met een schaal van 1:500.000 of groter, maar in Rusland kan de schaal wel 1:1.000.000 of groter zijn. Vaak wordt de term ten onrechte gebruikt voor kaarten die alleen natuurlijke reliëfkenmerken weergeven. 
Spanish ..... Se refiere a mapas que representan una región al nivel de detalles o escala entre un plano, que muestra un área pequeña y un mapa corográfico, que es un mapa de una vasta región. Los mapas topográficos incluyen representaciones exactas de la ubicación y forma de características tanto naturales como hechas por el hombre. El término se refiere a mapas a diferentes escalas en diferentes países; generalmente se limita su uso a mapas a escalas de 1:500.000 o más en los Estados Unidos, pero a menudo en Rusia se refiere a escalas de 1:1.000.000 o más. El término frecuentemente es erróneamente interpretado como mapas que solamente representan características de relieves naturales.
