The smaller the ratio of the scale, the smaller the ground-area covered, so the map should show that area in greater detail; a map at 1:25,000 will cover a quarter of the area covered by the same size map at 1:50,000, but should show it in more detail.

## What size is a 1 500000 scale map

Maps at scales of 1:250,000 (1 inch = about 4 miles), 1:500,000 (1 inch = about 8 miles), and 1:1,000,000 (1 inch = about 16 miles) cover very large areas on each sheet and are used in regional and statewide planning.

### What does a scale of 1 25000 on an OS map mean

The basics

On a 1:25 000 map, such as an OS Explorer, one unit of length on the map represents 25,000 units on the ground. So 1cm on the map represents 25,000cm or 250 metres on the ground.

## What are the possible scales of OS maps

The main scales used by Ordnance Survey (OS) for surveying are 1:1250, 1:2500 and 1:10 000. These are referred to as large scale maps, which is when features in the real world are portrayed larger on the map. OS also produce a number of mapping products at other scales, such as 1:25 000 scale and 1:50 000 scale.

## Which is the most detailed OS map

### What is a 1 10000 map scale

A map scale might be given in a drawing (a graphic scale), but it usually is given as a fraction or a ratio-1/10,000 or 1:10,000. These “representative fraction” scales mean that one unit of measurement on the map 1 inch or 1 centimeter represents 10,000 of the same units on the ground.

### What does 1 10000000 mean on a map

@GarrettHall In your example 1:10,000,000 means that 1 unit on your map (screen) is equal to 10,000,000 units on Natural Earth. i.e. 1m on map = 10,000,000m on Natural Earth.

### What scale is bigger 1 10000 or 1 100000

The larger a scale is the smaller will be the number in the scale. For example, a 1:10,000-scale map is said to have a larger scale than a 1:100,000-scale map.

### What does a 1 to 50000 scale map mean?

1 : 50,000 means that. 1 unit of the map represents 50,000 units on the ground. or. 1 cm represents 50,000 cm.

## What is 1 100000 scale in a map

Map scale refers to the relationship (or ratio) between distance on a map and the corresponding distance on the ground. For example, on a 1:100000 scale map, 1cm on the map equals 1km on the ground.

## Which scale is bigger 1 50000 or 1 10000

A large scale map shows greater detail because the scale is a larger fraction than a small scale map. Large scale maps have a scale of 1:50,000 or greater (1:24,000, 1:10,000, ). Maps with scales from 1:50,000 to 1:250,000 are considered intermediate. Small scale maps are those with scales smaller than 1:250,000.

## How accurate is a 1 25000 map

Map mark up, Measurements and Map Scales

If you mark up a feature such as a site boundary with a 1mm thickness line on a 1:10,000 map, then you will be accurate to +/-10 metres, marking the same site on a 1:250,000 map will be accurate to +/- 250 metres.

## What does 1 40000 map scale mean

Expression of Scale

Ratios indicate that 1 unit on the photo or map is equal to “x” number of units on the ground. For example, at a scale of 1:40,000 one inch on the photo or map would equal 40,000 inches or approximately 3,333 feet on the ground.

### What are the 3 types of scales on a map?

There are three types of scales commonly used on maps: written or verbal scale, a graphic scale, or a fractional scale. A written or verbal scale uses words to describe the relationship between the map and the landscape it depicts such as one inch represents one mile.

## What does a scale of 1 to 50000 mean?

A map would also usually give its scale numerically (“1:50,000”, for instance, means that one cm on the map represents 50,000cm of real space, which is 500 meters) A bar scale with the nominal scale , expressed as both “1cm = 6km” and “1:600 000” (equivalent, because 6km = 600 000cm)

### What does a scale of 1 50 000 mean

Ratio. A map scale is usually given as a ratio e.g. 1 : 50,000 which you read as “one-to-fifty thousand”. This means that every centimeter on the map represents 50,000cm or 500 meters on the ground. This is a large scale map as it gives a lot of detail over a small area of ground.

### What does a ratio scale of 1 50000 mean?

A 1:50,000 scale map means that 1 cm on the map represents 50,000 cm (i.e. 500 m) in the terrain. “Large-scale” means that the ratio is relatively large, so typically it means there is much detail to see, as on a 1:1000 printed map.

### What is a 1 24000 map scale

For example, a map scale indicating a ratio of 1:24,000 (in/in), means that for every 1 inch on the map, 24,000 inches have been covered on the ground. Ground distances on maps are usually given in feet or miles. Map Scale Conversion Factors. Scale.

## What does 1 30000 on a map mean

Putting a smaller area on a map, e.g. a street area of London, requires a larger scale to show more detail. Our London City Map is a 1:30,000 scale, meaning the 2.5km journey from Greenwich Park to the O2 fits into the same 15cm area.

### What does 1 15000 mean on a map

A scale of 1:15000 means that one unit on the map corresponds to 15000 actual units. Thus one centimeter on the map represents 15000 actual centimeters and hence 31.4 centimeters on the map represents 31.0 = 471000 cms.

## What is the disadvantage of using this scale 1 500000

It has become a very popular method of expressing the scale. Disadvantages : (i) It is only a fraction in which no system of units is used. Hence, distances cannot be directly measured from it. (ii) Whenever a map is photographically enlarged or reduced, the R.F. will no longer be true.
