TOPOGRAPHY

, is a description or draught of some particular place, or small tract of land; as that of a city or town, manor or tenement, field, garden, house, castle, or the like; such as surveyors set out in their plots, or make draughts of, for the information and satisfaction of the proprietors.

Topography differs from Chorography, as a particular from a more general.
