Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about one-twenty-five-thousandth as long as I-80
In other words, 629.980 feet is 0.00004140070 times the length of I-80, and the length of I-80 is 24,154.20 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Interstate 80, a.k.a. Keystone Shortway) (net length)
Interstate 80, crosses the continent of North America from Teaneck, New Jersey to San Francisco, California and covers a total length of 15,216,600 feet. A 196,850 feet stretch between mile marker 318 in Grand Island, Nebraska and mile marker 390 in Lincoln, Nebraska is the longest straight path in the US Interstate system.
It's about one-thirty-five-thousandth as long as The Great Wall of China (wall only)
In other words, 629.980 feet is 0.000030680 times the length of The Great Wall of China (wall only), and the length of The Great Wall of China (wall only) is 32,590 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 20,530,000 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 one-thirty-five-thousandth as long as The Amazon River
In other words, 629.980 feet is 0.000029830 times the length of The Amazon River, and the length of The Amazon River is 33,520 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 one-forty-five-thousandth as long as The Great Wall of China (total)
In other words, the length of The Great Wall of China (total) is 46,100 times 629.980 feet.
(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 one-sixty-five-thousandth as long as The Diameter of Earth
In other words, 629.980 feet is 0.0000150528220 times the length of The Diameter of Earth, and the length of The Diameter of Earth is 66,432.7260 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 1946 by the United States Army, which reached an altitude of 343,200 feet.
It's about 100,000 times as long as a Strand of Spaghetti (thickness)
In other words, 629.980 feet is 110,000 times the length of a Strand of Spaghetti (thickness), and the length of a Strand of Spaghetti (thickness) is 0.00000910 times that amount.
(average; restaurant and supermarket applications) (based on FMA Omcan Italian Made TR50 Counter Top Pasta Machine Extruder 13317)
An average strand of restaurant-grade spaghetti measures 0.0056 feet in thickness. In 2010, a California Buca di Beppo set a world record by preparing a 13,780-lb bowl of spaghetti, served in a swimming pool.
It's about 150,000 times as long as a Grain of Sand
In other words, 629.980 feet is 154,000 times the length of a Grain of Sand, and the length of a Grain of Sand is 0.000006490 times that amount.
(medium grain)
Composed mainly of quartz, mica, feldspar, or magnetite, a grain of sand measures an average of 0.0041 feet. In 2007, a team of seven in Myrtle Beach created the world's tallest sandcastle, which measured 49.50 feet in height.
