Hawaii Topographical Map

On a topographical map, sometimes called a topo map, contour lines are often used to join points of equal elevation above sea level and color gradations may depict elevation ranges between the contour lines.  Topographical maps are often used to determine areas and routes where the terrain is fairly level or where steep slopes exist.  This page includes both static and interactive topographical maps of Hawaii.

The Hawaiian island chain comprises the inhabited (Windward) islands in the southeast and the mostly uninhabited (Leeward) islands in the northwest.  This section features a topographical map of Hawaii's inhabited southeastern islands as well as a map legend that specifies elevation ranges and indicates their corresponding map colors.

Interactive Hawaii Topo Map

This section features a topographical map that can be zoomed and panned to show the inhabited islands of the State of Hawaii or a small portion of these islands.  To zoom in or out on the map, use the plus (+) button or the minus (-) button, respectively.  To pan the map in any direction, simply swipe it or drag it in that direction.  At high zoom levels, the contour lines on this Hawaii map can help outdoorsmen, land developers, and others to plan their routes and activities more efficiently.
