Much of this drawing is dominated by the open land of the downs. Relief is indicated by shading and brushwork interlining ('hachures') but there is no numerical record of trigonometrical altitudes. Paths on the moor are distinguished from roads by their pecked lines; roads through villages are indicated by parallel lines.
