    A question about plotting sheets and scale
    From: Yves Arrouye
    Date: 2001 Apr 23, 1:27 AM

    Hi,
    
    As I was working on question 5 of Silicon Sea: Leg 70, I had a question. I
    was using a plotting sheet printed from Ed Falk's site (I have real sheets
    on order). Now doing exactly what he shows at
    http://www.best.com/~falconer/Navigation/leg57-2.html, I have a mid-latitude
    of 13 N, and from right to left 3 longitudes lines reading 61, 62, and 63 W
    respectively. In order to plot St Lucia (13d 50.1' N 64d 04.0' W) I had to
    draw a fourth longitude line.
    
    Now my question is: what do you do if there isn't enough space to draw the
    lines you need (said I needed 6 degrees of longitude or latitude)? Do you
    just draw lines in-between and divide the corresponding scale by 2 or more?
    What's the impact on accuracy? I can't even get precise 1' measurements on
    the regular scale...
    
    YA
