Don't forget continuous roll plotters can plot images that are only
physically limited by the media length, (I can't remember if the
one at Uni was HP or not but it was a huge A0 wide roll type) in that
case an image of more than 100 feet long is not unreasonable (e.g. hot
air balloon panel patterns) and 688 feet doesn't seem quite that big.
