# What does 1 25000 scale mean?

Contents

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.

## 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.

## What does 1 50000 scale mean

This might sound complicated at first, but it simply means that with a scale of 1:50,000 one centimetre on the map represents 50,000 cm on the ground.

## 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.

### Is 1 24000 a large or small scale

The 1:24,000 scale is fairly large.

## Whats bigger 1/24 scale or 1/18 scale

In general, this means that for the same model car, a 1/18 scale version will be larger than a 1/24 scale version, which is larger than a 1/32, which is larger than a 1/43, which is larger than a 1/64, and so on.

## What is a 1 250000 scale?

What does 1 250000 mean on a map? The is a representative fraction of a simple ratio of the map to the ground in the same units but the units are not written. This is a larger scale than 1 12000. 1: 250000 means that 1 cm on the map represents 250000 cm on the ground.

### Which is bigger 1/16 scale or 1/64 scale

1/16 scale model is typically about 30 cm long. 1/32 scale is typically about 15 cm long. 1/64 scale is typically about 7.5 cm long. 4WD articulated tractors are somewhat larger and small tractors like the grey Fergy are somewhat smaller for the same scale.

### 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 a 1/25 scale mean?

Well, 1:25 means that 1 ‘unit’ on the plan is 25 ‘units’ in real life, so 1cm = 25cm, 1ft=25ft etc.

### What does a scale of 1 24 000 mean

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.

### What does a 1 500000 scale mean

1:500,000. One unit of length on the map represents 500,000 of that same unit on the ground. For example, 1 inch on the map = 500,000 inches on the ground. One cm on the map represents 500,000 cms on the ground.

### Is there a standard scale of 1 50000?

Maths (still sorry): A 1:50,000 scale means that each millimetre on your map represents 50,000 millimetres or 50 metres on the ground. (Therefore 2 mm on the map represents 100 metres and 2 cm a kilometre).

### What does 1 20000 scale mean?

According to the NMAS, for a paper map with a map scale (I define this term in some detail below) of 1:20,000 or larger, the accuracy of 90% of the depicted features must be within 1/30 inch of the scale. And for maps with a smaller scale, 90% of the features must be within 1/50 inch of the scale.

### What does the scale 1/24 000 mean

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.

## What does the scale of 1 250 000 mean

1:250 000 – which is 1 centimetre to 2.5 kilometre. 1:10 000 – which is 1 centimetre to 1 kilometre.

### What does the scale 1 500 000 mean?

1:500,000. One unit of length on the map represents 500,000 of that same unit on the ground. For example, 1 inch on the map = 500,000 inches on the ground. One cm on the map represents 500,000 cms on the ground.

## What is a large scale size

Large scale maps show a smaller amount of area with a greater amount of detail. The geographic extent shown on a large scale map is small. A large scaled map expressed as a representative scale would have a smaller number to the right of the ratio. For example, a large scale map could have a RF scale of 1 : 1,000.

## What is the smallest scale size

A micrometer, also called a micron, is one thousand times smaller than millimeter. It is equal to 1/1,000,000th (or one millionth of meter). Things on this scale usually can’t be seen with your eyes.

## What is a 1 50000 map called?

A graphical or bar scale. 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)

### Is 1 1250 bigger than 1 2500

The amount of information shown on the Ordnance Survey map differs between the scales. More detail can be shown on a larger scale map than on a map of a smaller scale; therefore, a 1:1250 map is surveyed to include more information and detail than a 1:2500 map.

## What is a 1 50000 scale map

For example, for a map with a scale of 1:50,000, every measurement you make on the map is 50,000 times bigger in the real world. So if you measure 1cm on the map, it equates to 500 metres on the ground (1cm x 50,000). Similarly, a 1:25,000 scale map is 25,000 times bigger in ‘real life.

### Which is bigger 1/200 scale or 1 400 scale

If size does matter, then in summary if looking at the same aircraft – say a Virgin Australia B777-300ER, a 1/100 scale model B777 aircraft is larger than a 1/200 scale model B777 aircraft, and a 1/200 scale model B777 aircraft is larger than a 1/400 scale model B777 aircraft.

## How big is 1 18 scale f1 car

Most models are approximately 11 inches (280 mm) long by 5 inches (130 mm) wide by 4 inches (100 mm) tall, depending on what vehicle is being represented.

### What does the scale 1 40000 mean?

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 does it mean 1 50 scale

For example, the scale of 1:50 means that 1 mm on the drawing represents 50 mm on the object. This means that the object is 50 times larger than the drawing of it. An object 450 mm long would be represented by a line 9 mm long (450 mm/50).

### How big is a 1 24,000 map?

For example, if your U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) map has a scale of 1:24,000, it means that 1 inch on the map is equal to 24,000 inches (2,000 feet or 610 meters) in the real world. Your map’s scale legend will always be at the bottom.

### How big is 1 24 scale figure

A 1/24 scale diecast car is generally about 16 – 20cm. Many of the cars made in the smaller scales (1/32-1/38) are actually made so that the car will be exactly 5 inches long, regardless of the scale. The 1/64 scale cars are a similar size to “matchbox” cars, usually 6 – 8cm.

### How big is 1 24 scale diecast car?

An example would be one inch of length on a model automobile would represent 24 inches on the real vehicle.

## What size is a 1 25000 map

A 1:25,000 topographic map is equivalent to zooming into double the size of 1:50,000. 1mm on the map now represents 25m on the ground. The beautiful thing here is that the scaling is maintained. So while the squares on a 1:25,000 are now 40mmx40mm, they still represent 1km x 1km on the ground.

### How far is 1cm on a 1 25000 map

A map has a scale of 1:25000. This means that 1 cm on the map is 25000 cm in real life, which is 250 m or 0.25 km.
