Have been pondering this weekend how I can graphically illustrate the effect of scale factor to non-land/hydrographic surveyors. Spent ages googling last night in vain and think I'll have to draw my own diagram. So how exactly do you explain to a non-surveyor that the distance you measure on the map/grid is not the same as that you measure on the ground?
On a lighter note I was pottery painting with my daughter on Saturday and fell in love with a teapot. Now just how sad is this?
