How Would I Go About Deciding on a Scale?
I'm just a bit curious on how I would choose a particular scale for my map. I'm not what you would call an "expert" on cartography and geography, so I'm seeking some guidance! I've attached an image of my map to see if anyone has a suggestion...
I was wondering the same thing for one of my maps a couple of weeks ago. Your map reminds we a lot of the Eastern Med, around Lebanon, Israel, and Northeastern Africa. That might be a good place to start for scale.
I'll have to delve into some maps of that area, then! Thank you for the suggestion!
