    well blueprints are one type of scale drawing. You don't want to draw the whole house at its actual size on a piece of paper. The paper would be huge. So you scale it down with the proper proportions. Maps are another type of scale drawing

    A different example is the depiction of a plant cell, which would need to scaled up, so the details can be seen.
