A quick and effective method of photomicrography in dematopathology has been devised using the idea of longitudes and latitudes as on a geographical map. In a horizontally oriented scalpel biopsy section, ten equi-distant vertical imaginary lines are drawn starting from the extreme left as V 0/10 and the extreme right as V 10/10. In addition, five equi-distant imaginary horizontal lines are drawn with H 0/5 on the stratum corneum and H 5/5 below the subcutis. The position of a particular field at higher magnification should be then noted at the scanner position (4x objective) for proper orientation.
