      Suppose I have a 1×1 square with a height of 1 and an area of 1. Suppose I magnify it into a 2×2 square with a height of 2 and an area of 4. Would my magnification have been 2x or 4x?

      I believe that if you find any picture that is 1éx, than the distance will be 10-times larger. Tha same for maps etc.

      Thanks, but what is 1éx?

      This link gave me the answer. Cambridgeincolour is a very good source for info about images and photography.

      With that picture of the quarter, its perimeter is halved when you roll over:
      1:2 or 0.5X magnification
      , and its perimeter is one-fourth when you roll over:
      1:4 or 0.25X magnification

      It’s perimeter (distance).

      Yep, just what I said. The page looks good.
