The unitary scale bar: human and machine readable
Stockholm University, Faculty of Science, The Wenner-Gren Institute .
2008 (English)In: Journal of Microscopy, ISSN 0022-2720, E-ISSN 1365-2818, Vol. 230, no 1, 163-166 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

A format is described for a scale bar that encodes the length represented within the structure of the bar itself, thereby removing the need for any supporting text. Although the 'unitary' scale bar has a conventional appearance it is also machine readable and therefore retains information about the scale even when the file format is changed. The format is based on the metre and is suitable for all terrestrial applications.
