Large-scale usage maps in the towns land survey office Hi I'm confuse by this sentence! Would you explain it? The first thing we did was to establish what proportion of the urban land is taken up by private gardens. We established that it was about one fifth, and this was endorsed by looking at Large-scale usage maps in the towns land survey office. Thank you

The scale of a map is the ratio between the length on the map to the real length. for example 1;50,000. A large scale map shows great detail on the ground. A usage map shows how the land is used. The maps in this example are detailed enough to measure the size of gardens. A town's survey office will normally have detailed maps.

I will write a simplified version. "First, we found out how much of the town's land was made of up people's back yards/gardens. It was 1/5 (20%) of the land. We confirmed this number by checking the maps in the office that keeps records of the town's land."
