Map distance scale

It would be nice to have a distance scale displayed on the map. It is hard to get a sense of scale in unfamiliar areas, so this would make planning (realistic) routes a bit easier.

Not exactly sure of the terminology, so maybe a picture is a better way of showing what I mean.

Also would provide context when looking at Lifemap’s. Because of the variation of the density of streets in different areas, it’s tough to get an impression of the length of a route without the scale present.

:+1: This is done and will be in the next release. Turns out, it was built into Mapbox GL JS. It’s nice, too - it dynamically updates as you zoom in and out.
