Contour diagrams A contour diagram is prepared to bring out the pattern of density distribution of a large number of poles plotted in a single diagram. To prepare a contour diagram the data are plotted on an equal area projection. The contouring is done on a separate piece of tracing sheet placed over the point diagram. We must know the total number of data points in the diagram. Let us consider an example in which there are 160 data points in the diagram. The concentration of the data points is determined by counting out the number of data points in each 1 per cent area of the diagram.

To measure the attitude of a planar structure, the straight edge of the compass is placed on it and the compass is rotated till the stylus hangs freely and indicates that the dial is vertical. At this position the zero mark of the inner circle lies along the normal to the planar structure. Since the stylus now points towards the vertical direction, the angle between the vertical and the normal to the plane is directly given by the position of the stylus at the inner scale. This is the dip angle.

The apparent dip is the inclination of the trace of the planar structure on a vertical section that makes an angle with the dip direction (Fig. 10). We shall see in Chapter 4 how to determine the attitude of a bed from its apparent dips with the help of stereographic projection. 1. Principles of stereographic projection Stereographic projection is an essential tool of structural geology. It is used to represent the orientations of planar and linear structures of an area and to find out the angular relations among them.
