2Map Scale Relationship of distance on map to distance on Earth 1:24,0001:100,0001:250,000
3How Map Scales are Represented Verbal1 inch = 1mileMay not be precise, but close enough for estimatesGraphicPrinted on map, if map enlarged or reduced still gives reliable scaleNumerical (Fractional)Ratio 1:500Fraction 1/500Can be used with any units
4Large Scale vs Small Scale 1:24,0001:100,0001:250,000
6Conversions you may need 1 mile =5280 ft63360 in1.6 km1 kilometer =1000m.62 miles
7Practice - AES Calculate the verbal scale 1:62500____________mi/inWrite the fractional scale of the map provided (bottom center)Write the verbal scale of the map provided__________mi/inCompare the verbal scale you wrote above against the graphic scale. Are they the same?
