 When you start QGIS, degrees is the default unit, and it tells QGIS
 that any coordinate in your layer is in degrees. To get correct scale values,
 you can either change this to meter manually in the \tab{General} tab under
 \mainmenuopt{Settings} \arrow \dropmenuopt{Project Properties} or you can select a project
