Specs: several
 On this web page, for a river-rafting place in Norway: https://www.visitnorway.com/listing... is a topographic map of the area around the rafting place.Scroll down the page a bit to see the map. The map itselfcan be scrolled or enlarged to fill your screen. It canalso be zoomed in or zoomed out. I have not been able to find a distance scale on the map.How can I determine the scale? The web page says the rafting place operates only duringthe summer, so I don't know whether anyone will get myemail to them. I need an answer right now. :-) A few kilometres upriver is the small town of Bagn, and acouple of kilometres northwest of the center of Bagn is theeven smaller town of Reinli. That is the area I'm actuallyinterested in. If I knew, for example, the straight-linedistance between the Bagn church (Bagn kyrkje) and theReinli stave church (Reinli stavkyrkje) to some degree ofprecision (say +/- 5 metres), then I could easily calculatethe map scale. There is what appears to be a soccer fieldon the map, next to the middle school / junior high school(the largest green rectangle near the center of town), butmy understanding is that sizes of soccer fields vary allover the place, so I can't use it to find the scale. (Plus,this soccer field appears to have been turned into a gravelpile during the construction of a new highway tunnel throughthe mountain across the river, so it may no longer exist.) -- Jeff, in Minneapolis
