Les articles traduits If you have a map with you, you might want to know that 10cm correspond to 1, 10 or 100 km in real life ! The scale is the relation between the distance on a map and the distance on the field :
For example a scale 1:25,000 represents :
That means 1mm on the map is worth 25,000mm in real life (25m)
It also means 1 cm on the map is worth 25,000cm in real life (250m) So 4 cm make 1km for real.
1cm is 50,000cm = 500m
55mm x 50m = 2 750m
X cm are 18km 1cm is 250,000cm = 2.5km
