Topographic maps try to ensure that each geographical object is represented with shapes and dimensions similar to reality. However, many objects cannot be scaled on paper, which is why they are represented with a conventional sign.

With conventional signs or cartographic symbols we distinguish roads, particular types of buildings (churches, chapels, factories, etc.), bridges, railways, aqueducts; still others show the characteristics of crops, spontaneous plants and so on.

The conventional signs found on topographic maps are therefore numerous. Many of them can be seen, with the relative explanation, at the bottom of each map of the Italian Military Geographical Institute. (Source: Wikipedia)
