I posted my question(subject: "map exactly") couple of days back and for
some reason no one replied me, may b i should be clear with my problem
(Question: 1)

 I have a image and i added as a layer in Openmap. The layer i created
represents 1500 kms in width and 1500kms in height. I place this at certain
latitude and longitude. My Question is How to map it exactly?? I mean the
distance covered by layer on the map should be 1500 kms, How could this be
possible. For example the distance between Longitudes at Equator is 110 kms(
i guess) . How can i map exactly if i have a image that represents 1500 kms
and i want to center the image at Lat,Lon(27,-80).
 The program output looks something like this,

(Question : 2)

How can i add more Shape layers, where can i get it from? I want something
that looks more fancy. My professor was not impressed by the "Political
Boundaries" layer, he wants something more good looking.

Can someone help me out,

Thanks a lot.
