It's about one-fifteenth as tall as The Space Needle
In other words, the height of The Space Needle is 16.70 times 0.011 kilometers.
(Seattle, Washington) (to aircraft warning beacon at peak)
Built for a 1962 World's Fair, the Space Needle stands 0.1840 kilometers tall. With a track-and-wheel design inspired by railroad mechanics and a precisely-configured balance, the restaurant near the top of the space needle requires just a 1.5 hp motor to rotate at speeds of about 0.053 kph (0.033 mph).
It's about seventeen times as long as a Woman's Footstep
In other words, the length of a Woman's Footstep is 0.059 times 0.011 kilometers.
(for healthy, middle-aged woman of average height; single step length)
According to studies by The University of Oklahoma's Health Sciences Center, the average length of a woman's step is 0.00066 kilometers, for an average stride (two-step's length) of 0.0013 kilometers. The average person walks at a speed of about 1.3 m/s
It's about one-twentieth as tall as The Golden Gate Bridge
In other words, 0.011 kilometers is 0.0485 times the height of The Golden Gate Bridge, and the height of The Golden Gate Bridge is 20.60 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 one-twenty-fifth as long as The QE2
In other words, the length of The QE2 is 26.70 times 0.011 kilometers.
(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 thirty times as tall as a Bowling Pin

In other words, 0.011 kilometers is 0.028871 times the height of The Empire State Building, and the height of The Empire State Building is 34.6370 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.
