    To find the scale find out the real length and measure the same on ur map. the scale is the ratio of the two

    That's a tough one. I'm not sure what how many inches equal miles on the first one, but the left hand side describing the stats for the map has the RF scale of the map set as this: 1:1,100,000

    lol, that's true! Actually, the RF scale just means that for every, say, inch on the map, it equals 1,100,000 inches in real life. Not sure how that can translate back to the kind of scale you are looking for, though, sorry...

    1 mile = 63360 inches. 1100000 inches = about 17.4 miles
