Secondly, it is used to convert map distances to real distances, enabling users to understand the real-world distances represented on the map. Therefore, the correct answer is "all of the above" as a map scale serves both of these functions.

This climate region covers a significant portion of Canada, particularly in the northern parts of the country.
