scaling distances & old plats
I'm working with a 1953 plat. If I scale the distances by -1:1000 (that is, a tenth of a foot long in 100') it fits pretty well with the found monuments.
I have read that it is common for steel taped distances to be longer than shorter, due to tape sag, temperature effects, etc. Is -1:1000 common or an extreme case?
