What: The design of the scale bars on this map is a good example of those designed for distance measurement when walking. Why: They can be used by placing a thumb or finger on the bar to get a rough approximation of distance on the map. Since the ESRI International Users Conference attended by an international audience from more than one hundred countries, so we knew that scales for both feet and meters would be needed. The distance intervals were selected so they would be easy to multiply over distances on the map.
The scale bars were designed with simplicity in mind; they should not be visually prominent, yet their placement should be sufficiently isolated so as to be easy to find. How: To create these scale bars, we used Scale Line 3 from the ESRI.style and edited its properties as follows:
Based on the left edge of the map, we left-aligned the scale bars and north arrow. The result was a right edge that roughly echoed the shape of the marina.
