I need some clarification. I have a map the is set to the scale of 1:6000. In Settings>Project Properties, under the General tab I have the Layer Units set to feet. Therfore I assume that means the scale is 1 foot equals 6000 feet. Does this seem rights? Or is it 1 inch equals 6000 inches?
I am ultimately attempting to convert this to traditional engineering scale of 1 inch equal __ feet.
Found this handy description for anyone that interested. http://groundwater.fullerton.edu/groundwater/Maps,_Scale,_GIS_and_GPS/Guide_to_Map_Scale.html
