What is a topographic map- How is an AFM image that you obtained using.docx

What is a topographic map? How is an AFM image that you obtained using the Excel spreadsheet like a topographic map?
Solution
Topographic maps can be defined as accurate graphic representations of features present on the surface of earth. The features represented are roads, buildings, railways, airports, lakes, rivers, streams, swamps, mountains, valleys etc. On a topographical map, features having same height are joined together by a line known as contour line.
Similarly, in atomic force microscopy (AFM), the signals are recorded when a bump is encountered by the pointer. The height of the bump determines the force experienced by the pointer and hence the strength of the signal for that particular bump. This means that all the bumps on the surface with same height will give same signal in AFM, and in this way, AFM image and topographical maps are similar.
