Scale level

A scale level is a notation of the map scale used in interactive maps (Google Maps, etc.).

Scale Levels are generally denoted by numbers from 1 to 22.

There is no single conversion of Scale Levels to Numerical Scale. The values of the Numerical Scale for a particular level depend on the longitude and latitude, as well as the resolution of the monitor.

  1. Level 1 is the view of the whole world
  2. Level 22 is the view of a single car
