         I am a student, and have some ground water potenstial maps made on hard copy, with scale 1 cm = 100 mt.  Now I would like to vectorize it to same scale, what i did is? 


Open the drawing fine in metric system

Inserted the image with command im

given the scale 1500 (origin-0,0,0 and rotation -0)


in hard copy I have two parallel lines, the distence between that is 150 mt and I measured in autocad it is almost same.


My doubt is, is it the right method of setting the scale.


Thanks in advance.

Try to use SCALE ( REFERENCE ) , i think it's more accurate.
