A shaded and colored image (i.e. terrain is enhanced) of varied terrain from the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission. This shows elevation model of New Zealand's Alpine Fault running about 500 km (300 mi) long. The escarpment is flanked by a vast chain of hills between the fault and the mountains of New Zealand's Southern Alps. Northeast is towards the top.

Landforms together make up a given terrain, and their arrangement in the landscape is known as topography.

- Landform

Land surface objects, or landforms, are definite physical objects (lines, points, areas) that differ from the surrounding objects.

Topography is the study of the forms and features of land surfaces.

Topography in a narrow sense involves the recording of relief or terrain, the three-dimensional quality of the surface, and the identification of specific landforms; this is also known as geomorphometry.
