Here’s a look at a map of the east side of Dubuque, Iowa. It shows a driving path from a casino on the river to a golf course on the other side. According to the maps app on my phone, the driving distance is 3.0 miles. We’re most interested in the graphic at the bottom left, which indicates that 1 inch on the map (measure if you don’t believe me) corresponds to 2,000 feet in real life.   If a 50-foot boat were on the river, how big would it appear on the photo? Round to three decimal places.
