Scale on printed maps

549 Views, 3 Replies

What does the scale mean on the printed maps? At the bottom of your mapguide window you have 1:2500 and then next to it you have 1667X1682 (ft), so what does the 1:2500 mean? How would you print a map that is 1" = 300' for instance?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you.

1:2500 is standard way to indicate scale in cartography. It means 1 unit = 2500units. If your map is in feet you just divide the 2500 by 12 to get the 1" = ?? feet. -- Charles C.

Oh and I forgot. To print to a specific scale, right click in the map view. Then it is print>page setup. It is at the bottom of the dialog. -- Charles C.
