To help compare different orders of magnitude this page lists lengths between 1 and 10 km (10^{3} to 10^{4} m).

- Distances shorter than 1,000 m
- 1000 m -- wavelength of the highest [long wave]? radio frequency, [300 kHz]?
- 1000 m -- 0.62 miles.
- 1000 m -- side of a square of area 1 km
^{2}. - 1000 m -- radius of a circle of area 3.14 km
^{2}. - 1300 m -- height of Haltitunturi?, highest point in Finland
- 1600 m -- One mile
- 1900 m -- One nautical mile
- 2100 m -- height of Kebnekaise?, highest point in Sweden
- 8900 m -- height of [Mount Everest]?, highest point on Earth
- 10 km -- wavelength of the lowest [long wave]? radio frequency, [30 kHz]?
- Distances longer than 10 km
