5). Bar scales showing miles, feet, and kilometers are generally provided on most topographic maps. The left side of the bar is often divided into fractions to allow for more accurate measurements. A graphic scale is more useful than a fractional scale for measuring distances between points and can be used to make your own “map ruler” by transferring the bar scale to a piece of paper.
