Question and answer
What do you call the information found in the legend which indicates how distances on the map equate to distances on the earth? A. Contour B. Interval C. Legend D. Scale
D. Scale: The relationship between distance on a map and actual distance on the earth Scale: The relationship between distance on a map and actual distance on the earth. [ Scale may be represented by words (e.g., “one inch equals one mile”), a ratio or fraction (e.g., 1:63,360), or a divided bar. Bar scale is best to use when enlarging or reducing the size of a map, since the scale size will change with the map size. A map showing a small area in detail (such as a street map of a neighborhood) is a “large scale” map, while a map showing a large area without much detail (such as the world or
a continent) is a “small scale” map ]
