The scale is of greater importance on topographical maps than on thematic maps. On topographic ones, which also use standard scales established by convention, only conventional cartographical signs are used by means of which the content on the maps is represented accurately and in detail. On thematic maps, which differ widely with regard to both scale and content, only ancillary topographical signs are precisely located because they serve as orientation in the geographical space, whereas the signs related to the main content (theme) on the map are usually much larger than the scale would allow and are often located also outside the actual topographical position. As examples, the A. includes tests with maps at different scales representing the smallest political territorial areas of the commune of Kamnik.
