if each of the 1.5 million documents is a single sheet, and 1500
sheets can be placed in a standard records storage carton (15x12x10
here in the US) then you would have 1000 boxes
If stacked on a football field the paper would reach a height of X.
here in the states an American football field is used for analogous
purposes a lot because people can visualize it easily.
that is the main thing you want is to create a comparison that folks
can relate to. 1.5 million documents stacked vertically will create a
stack equal to ?
