Only engineer's scale can do this why other scales can't?

1. Engineer, or civil, scales, such as 1" = 10' or 1" = 50', are used for measuring roads, water mains, and topographical features. The distance relationships also may be shown as 1 : 10 or 1 : 50.

2. Architect scales, such as 1/4" = 1' - 0" (1/48 size) or 1/8" = 1' - 0" (1/96 size), are used for structures and buildings. They are used to measure interior and exterior dimensions such as rooms, walls, doors, windows, and fire protection system details.
