|Definitionskos:definition||The relationship between distance on a map and the corresponding distance on the earth`s surface. Map scale is often recorded as a representative fraction such as 1:1,000,000 (1 unit on the map represents a million units on the earth`s surface) or 1:24,000 (1 unit on the map represents 24,000 units on the earth`s surface). The terms `large` and `small` refer to the relative magnitude of the representative fraction. Since 1/1,000,000 is a smaller fraction than 1/24,000, the former is said to be a smaller scale. Small scales are often used to map large areas because each map unit covers a larger earth distance. Large-scale maps are employed for detailed maps of smaller areas.|
