Remarks

Scale is the relationship between the dimensions of features on a map and the geographic objects they represent on the earth, commonly expressed as a fraction. A map scale of 1:100000 means that one unit of measure on the map equals 100000 of the same units on the earth.

CAUTION
The MapUnit property should be set to the proper map unit before the MapScale property returns and sets meaningful values.
