Present day ideas on the topography-field (field of elevations) are considered at the conceptual, methodical and technical levels. A conceptual apparatus of analytic geomorphology is introduced which is to represent adequately main components and aspects of the topography-field morphology. Notions of the external and internal forms (i. e. morphology and structure) are elaborated, the former being subdivided into topology and metrics, the latter - into vertical and horizontal structure. Metrics include, in turn, external and internal geometry. Definitions are given for symmetry, hierarchy and structural position. The topographic structure is shown to be of importance for the topography functioning as a material system. The morphological study of the topography is shown to be of current concern with a view to the automatic processing of the remote sensing data and development of the computer-based geoinformation systems and geomorphological cadastres
