3. 3. DIRECT STATEMENT written words 1cm to 1km/1cm represents 1km This means that 1cm on the map represents 1km on the earth’s surface
4. 4. REPRESENTATIVE FRACTION written in numbers as a ratio 1:100 000 or 1/100 000 -This means that 1cm on the map represents 1km on the earth’s surface
5. 5. LINEAR SCALE divided line. Use a ruler to measure linear scale. You will see that 1cm represents 1km on the earth’s surface.
6. 6. LARGE OR SMALL MAPS Large scale maps- scale of 1:1 000 000 or larger 1:250 000, 1:50 000, 1:10 000) -show a small area of the earth in considerable detail -usually topographic maps Small scale maps- scale of 1:1 000 000 or smaller 1:5 000 000, 1:8 000 000) -show relatively large areas of earth in not so much detail
