It's about four-and-a-half times as tall as a Telephone Pole
In other words, the height of a Telephone Pole is 0.230 times 0.0469 kilometers.
(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 0.011 kilometers 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-fifth as tall as The Golden Gate Bridge
In other words, 0.0469 kilometers is 0.2070 times the height of The Golden Gate Bridge, and the height of The Golden Gate Bridge is 4.830 times that amount.
(San Francisco, California and Marin County, California) (height above water)
The height of each tower of Golden Gate Bridge is 0.2270 kilometers above the surface of the San Francisco Bay. One of the key designers of the bridge, Charles Ellis, had no engineering degree when he began working on the project, but would later go on to write what became a standard textbook on structural engineering, and would ultimately be forced to complete his calculations on the bridge by working without pay for five months.
It's about five-and-a-half times as long as a London bus
In other words, the length of a London bus is 0.1790 times 0.0469 kilometers.
(Routemaster Double-Decker, RM standard specification)
The Routemaster Double-Decker buses, well-known as icons of London, measure 0.00838 kilometers 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-fifth as long as The QE2
In other words, 0.0469 kilometers is 0.160 times the length of The QE2, and the length of The QE2 is 6.250 times that amount.
(a.k.a. RMS Queen Elizabeth 2)
The QE2 has a total length of 0.2940 kilometers. During its voyaging lifetime from 1969 through 2008, it travelled more than 9.6 million km, the furthest cumulative distance by any ship in modern history.
It's about one-tenth as tall as The Eiffel Tower
In other words, 0.0469 kilometers is 0.1450 times the height of The Eiffel Tower, and the height of The Eiffel Tower is 6.90 times that amount.
(a.k.a. La Tour Eiffel) (Paris, France) (to flagpole peak)
The Eiffel Tower stands 0.3240 kilometers tall, including its flagpole. The Tower is the largest structure in Paris as most other buildings are governed by a zoning restriction limiting them to a height of 0.037 kilometers or less.
It's about eight times as tall as a Giraffe
In other words, the height of a Giraffe is 0.10 times 0.0469 kilometers.
(Giraffa camelopardalis) (Adult, average)
An adult giraffe may grow to be up to 0.006 kilometers tall. Adult giraffes require very little sleep, averaging just 1.9 hours per day.
It's about one-tenth as tall as The Empire State Building
In other words, 0.0469 kilometers is 0.123090 times the height of The Empire State Building, and the height of The Empire State Building is 8.12410 times that amount.
(New York City, New York) (to top of building)
The Empire State Building stands 0.381010 kilometers to its architectural peak. The spire emerging from the top of the building was originally intended to be a mooring mast for blimps whose passengers could disembark onto a landing platform on the 102nd floor of the building.
