    I'm making a map of a city block but am confused how to come up with correct scale.The total length of the block is 320.33 feet long (3844 inches, 9763.76cm). I measured each building and lot physically and the measurements are based on my 8 inch stride. The buildings and lots are as follows:

    18 x 8 = 144 in, 12ft, 365.76 cm wide
    34X8=272 IN, 22.6 ft, 690.88 cm deep

    Parking Lot-280 in. wide, 320 in deep

    Apartments: 144 in wide, 1104 in deep

    House 240 inches wide, 136 in deep

    I have a whole block of buildings. How do I decide how big to draw each area to have a total of 2-4 sheets of paper taped together?
