An animation that introduces scale with scalable views of the capitol building in Atlanta, Georgia. Scenes can be portrayed from distances of 0.1 to 10,000 miles. Six images accompany the animation and freeze views at 0.1, 1, 10, 100, 1000, and 10,000 miles above the capitol. It would be more helpful if the bar scale in images accompanying the animation were consistently left at the same size. The Flash animation can be paused and rewound to stress important points.
