Scales of Analysis

  • Scales of Analysis: how a map is analyzed
  • Scale: relationship between the portion of Earth being studied and Earth as a whole
    • Examples:
      • Country color coded based on religion
      • City with supermarkets highlighted
      • Schools across a state
    • The size of the place (city vs country) and area of interest (religion, supermarket, schools) are various dimensions and scales of analysis
