locations of featured places.
- What is the geographic
area to be covered?
- What is the final
image size? Is the proportion (relative height and width) of the geography
fairly close to the proportion of the final image size?

printed map, have you selected a printer, and the type of printing process
- Do you know your
- What is the time
