- - ----------------------------------------------------------------------
This is a small package to create scalebars for maps, diagrams or photos. 
It was designed for use with cave maps but can be used for anything from 
showing a scalebar in kilometers for topographic maps to a scalebar in 
micrometers for an electron microscope image.
