I originally started out worrying about scale, but had to quickly abandon
that due to different scales used by different mapping applications. I have
settled into a 200 ppi render density, but again do not worry about actual
scale size of the rendered object. I tend to render large, since scaling
down will not lose any detail, but scaling up will.

I typically use the Main camera with an Xorbit of -90, which puts it
pointing straight down. On rare occasions I might adjust that slightly to
give a little perspective to something that is otherwise unidentifiable when
viewed from straight above.

As always, your mileage may vary, and each person does their own thing. I'm
not sure the CSUAC has a universal scale or render density, since it is a
compilation of renders from many different people.
