contour map


Explanation:
Sure wish we had more context--i.e., what it is that "incorpora plano..." I am guessing that this is two different ways that something has been mapped... (cf. Oxford SuperLex: *plano acotado = contour map*)

(it) includes scaled contour and elevation maps/plats (for property mapping)

Explanation:
