MapTools Ruler Set for Benchmark Road & Recreation Atlas - Washington

$ 12.95
This ruler set was designed to be used with the Benchmark Road & Recreation Atlas for Washington. It contains 7 ruler pairs for measuring latitude longitude coordinates at latitudes ranging from 44° to 50° on a map with a scale of 1:200,000. It also contains rulers for measuring statute miles and kilometers.The "landscape" pages of the atlas have a printed lat/lon grid shown with thin black lines. The lines are marked with their values just inside of the edges of the map, in a degrees, minutes and seconds format. The "recreation" and "regional" sections of the atlas do not have lat/lon markings and are printed with a different scale. These rulers can not be used on pages in those sections.Longitude rulers used north of their design parallel of latitude, will be too long to fit the grid. The ruler should be "close enough" up to about 1° north of the design latitude. As you move north, you may find the next ruler in the set is a closer fit. You can also use the ruler on a slight diagonal between the grid lines to compensate for the extra length.These rulers are printed on Rite-In-The-Rain cardstock. They come packaged in a vinyl pouch with an instruction sheet printed on Rite-In-The-Rain paper.
