Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about one-seven-hundredth as long as The Great Wall of China (wall only).
In other words, 30,180 feet is 0.00147 times the length of The Great Wall of China (wall only), and the length of The Great Wall of China (wall only) is 680.30 times that amount.
(长城, 長城, Chángchéng, a.k.a. 万里长城, 萬里長城, Wànlǐ Chángchéng) (a.k.a. "The long wall of 10,000 Li") (from Shanhaiguan through Lop Nur, China) (wall segments only)
The Great Wall of China has total wall segment length of 20,530 feet. Built and maintained in multiple sections over about eleven centuries, the Great Wall is currently suffering the effects of erosion, especially in the older sections made primarily out of mud.
It's about one-seven-hundredth as long as The Amazon River.
In other words, 30,180 feet is 0.001429 times the length of The Amazon River, and the length of The Amazon River is 699.80 times that amount.
(from Nevado Mismi, Arequipa, Peru through near Marajó, Brazil) (approximate distance)
The Amazon River has an approximate distance of 21,120,000 feet. Although by most measures it is the largest and one of the most significant rivers in the world, the region surrounding the Amazon is mostly sparsely populated and the river itself has no bridges across it at any point.
It's about 700 times as tall as a Brachiosaurus.
In other words, 30,180 feet is 710 times the height of a Brachiosaurus, and the height of a Brachiosaurus is 0.0014 times that amount.
(based on comparable bone measurements, height to head)
Dinosaurs in the genus Brachiosaurus had an estimated height (at the head with neck fully extended) of up to 43 feet. A resin cast of the first Brachiosaurus specimen, owned by the Field Museum in Chicago, is currently on display at the O'Hare International Airport.
It's about 850 times as tall as a Telephone Pole.
In other words, the height of a Telephone Pole is 0.0012 times 30,180 feet.
(a.k.a. Utility Pole, a.k.a Power Pole, a.k.a. Telegraph Pole, a.k.a. Telegraph Post, a.k.a. Hydro Pole) (exposed height; per Florida Public Service Commission average)
A standard telephone pole is 36 feet tall. Despite alternatives, most telephone poles in the US are made of wood — most commonly pine — and have a lifespan of 25 to 50 years, depending on climate and preservatives applied.
It's about one-nine-hundred-fiftieth as long as The Great Wall of China (total).
In other words, 30,180 feet is 0.00104 times the length of The Great Wall of China (total), and the length of The Great Wall of China (total) is 962 times that amount.
(长城, 長城, Chángchéng, a.k.a. 万里长城, 萬里長城, Wànlǐ Chángchéng) (a.k.a. "The long wall of 10,000 Li") (from Shanhaiguan through Lop Nur, China) (total length, all branches)
The Great Wall of China, including all branches and trenches, is 29,000,000 feet. Built and maintained in multiple sections over about eleven centuries, the Great Wall is currently suffering the effects of erosion, especially in the older sections made primarily out of mud.
It's about 1,000 times as long as a London bus.
In other words, 30,180 feet is 1,100 times the length of a London bus, and the length of a London bus is 0.000909 times that amount.
(Routemaster Double-Decker, RM standard specification)
The Routemaster Double-Decker buses, well-known as icons of London, measure 27.50 feet in length. The buses were said to be well-designed for travel in the London traffic, as they offered an open door for riders to board and exit even while the bus was moving at low speeds, and a full-time conductor to collect fares.
It's about one-one-thousand-five-hundredth as long as The Diameter of Earth.
In other words, 30,180 feet is 0.00072112472 times the length of The Diameter of Earth, and the length of The Diameter of Earth is 1,386.72270 times that amount.
(Equatorial)
The Earth — not a perfect sphere, but rather an oblate spheroid with bulged middle — has a diameter of approximately 41,851,289 feet at the Equator. The first complete view of Earth's diameter was in a photograph taken from a V-2 rocket launched in 1942 by the United States Army, which reached an altitude of 343,200 feet.
