Scale (map) The ratio of the Earth's size to the generating globe's size is called the nominal scale (= principal scale = representative fraction). Many maps state the nominal scale and may even display a bar scale (sometimes merely called a 'scale') to represent it. The second distinct concept of scale applies to the variation in scale across a map. It is the ratio of the mapped point's scale to the nominal scale. In this case 'scale' means the scale factor (= point scale = particular scale).
Linear scale The terms "bar scale", "graphic scale", "graphical scale", "linear scale", and "scale" are all used. "Bowditch" defined only "bar scale" in its 1962 Glossary, but added a reference to "graphic scale" by its 2002 edition. Dutton used both terms in 1978. The International Hydrographic Organization's "Chart No. 1" uses only "linear scale". The British Admiralty's "Mariner's Handbook" uses "scale" to describe a linear scale and avoids confusion by using "natural scale" for the fraction defined at scale (map).
Scale (music) Scales such as the pentatonic scale may be considered "gapped" relative to the diatonic scale. An "auxiliary scale" is a scale other than the primary or original scale. See: modulation (music) and Auxiliary diminished scale.
Linear scale A linear scale, also called a bar scale, scale bar, graphic scale, or graphical scale, is a means of visually showing the scale of a map, nautical chart, engineering drawing, or architectural drawing.
Symmetric scale In the case of "inversionally symmetrical" scales, the inversion of the scale is identical. Thus the intervals between scale degrees are symmetrical if read from the "top" (end) or "bottom" (beginning) of the scale (mirror symmetry). Examples include the Ukrainian Dorian b9 scale (sixth mode of the Hungarian Major scale), the Jazz Minor b5 scale (fifth mode of the involution of Hungarian Major), the Neapolitan Major scale (fourth mode of the Major Locrian scale), the Javanese slendro, the chromatic scale, whole-tone scale, Dorian scale, the Aeolian Dominant scale (fifth mode of the melodic minor), and the double harmonic scale.
Micro armour Beyond squad-level scale there is half-platoon scale, platoon scale, company scale, battalion scale and division scale.
Minor scale In its upper tetrachord, the ascending melodic minor scale is identical to its major scale. The descending melodic minor scale is identical to the natural minor scale.
Scale relativity To describe scale transformations requires the use of fractal geometries, which are typically concerned with scale changes. Scale relativity is thus an extension of relativity theory to the concept of scale, using fractal geometries to study scale transformations.
Lydian augmented scale In music, the Lydian augmented scale (Lydian 5 scale) is the third mode of the ascending melodic minor scale or jazz minor scale.
Vernier scale or "(Pitch)/(Number of Vernier scale divisions) = (Length of one main scale division - Length of one Vernier scale division)"
ZZ scale Until the 2006 announcement of T scale, ZZ scale was the smallest commercially available scale for model railroads.
Rosiwal scale The Rosiwal scale is used in mineralogy in the same way as Mohs scale and Knoop scale.
Scale space At any scale in scale space, we can apply local derivative operators to the scale-space representation:
Double harmonic scale The nearest other existing scale to the double harmonic scale is the Phrygian dominant scale. The double harmonic scale may be made from a Phrygian dominant scale by sharpening its 7th degree.
Ukrainian Dorian scale This scale is obtainable from the harmonic minor scale by starting from the fourth of that scale. Said another way, the B Ukrainian minor scale is the fourth mode of the F# harmonic minor scale.
Major scale A major scale is a diatonic scale. The sequence of intervals between the notes of a major scale is:
Hungarian minor scale This scale is obtainable from the Arabic scale by starting from the fourth of that scale. Said another way, the C Hungarian minor scale is equivalent to the G Arabic scale.
Jazz scale The major pentatonic scale begins with a major scale and omits the fourth and the seventh scale degrees.
Altered scale The altered scale is also enharmonically the C Locrian mode, C-D-E-F-G-A-B, with F changed to F. For this reason, the altered scale is sometimes called the "super Locrian mode". It is also enharmonically the seventh mode of the ascending melodic minor scale. The altered scale is also known as the Pomeroy scale after Herb Pomeroy (; ), the Ravel scale (after Maurice Ravel), and the diminished whole-tone scale due to its resemblance to the lower part of the diminished scale and the upper part of the whole-tone scale , as well as the dominant whole-tone scale and Locrian flat four .
Tritonic scale A tritonic scale is a musical scale or mode with three notes per octave. This is in contrast to a heptatonic (seven-note) scale such as the major scale and minor scale, or a dodecatonic (chromatic 12-note) scale, both common in modern Western music. Tritonic scales are not common in modern art music, and are generally associated with primitive music.
