Abstract Edwin. K. Haamond developed In 1954 and refined in 1964, a landform classification system which he applied to small scale maps. In this thesis large scale (1:24,000) U.S.G.S. topographic maps were tested using Hammond's classification criteria. Only four of twenty-eight test areas received the sans landform classification as on the Hammond landform map of the United states. By making minor modifications in the classification criteria, twenty-five of the test areas matched the Hammond classification. The modified Hammond system therefore, can be usable for large scale landform analysis. To aid in illustrating the Hammond classification system, forty-three block diagrams of the landform types that occur in the United States are included in the study.
