For the newest of mappers, here is a super quick tutorial for making sure your map scale is correct!

I visited the University of Maryland (edit: just remembered this was taken at UMBC, though I did visit both) the other day, and saw these stairs, and instantly thought of this:

This is now the University of Incorrect Scaling.

I just remembered, this was taken at UMBC, not Maryland. I did visit both the other day though.

Real talk; stairs will always be the bane of my existence. I can never get my stairs to look right.
I've always done a rise/run of 8/12, and had the steps be 8 high, 12 long. They usually look good.

Ya, I go to UMBC, and I walk past this ridiculously impractical staircase every day. It haunts me.
