Projected orbits of the Our Place In Space model of the solar system in Cambridge, August 2022.

These orbits are based on the distance between the sun on Midsummer Common and Saturn by the Chisholm Trail bridge at #185175.

That distance is 2292 metres, and so using an orbital radius of 1443 million km gives a scale of 1:625 million - which is close to the value of 1:591 that they based it upon.

There's quite a long list of solar system schemes at: de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Planetenweg

The geometries of four of those schemes: York, Sweden, Bonn and Cambridge can be viewed at: geojson.io/
