Map Scale and Distance Calculator
Calculate scale, distance on the map or real distance on Earth. Please enter two values, the third will be calculated.
An example: on a map with the scale 1:20000, 3 centimeters accord to 0.6 kilometers in reality.
1 cm ⇒ 20000 cm
3 cm ⇒ 20000 * 3 cm = 60000 cm = 600 m = 0.6 km
The scale is rounded to integers, the distance of the map to 0.1, the real distance to 0.001.
Calculate lengths from map scales and convert different scales. Enter the length of a distance on a map, the scale and the unit and click Calculate. Real length returns the real distance on Earth.
