first you have to convert lat/lon to unique values. If you have, by example:

12 deg 15 min 40 seg

you should convert to pure degrees, like:

puredeg = 12 + 15/60 + 40/3600

also, you have to be aware of the sign, I suggest negative values for north and west, for easy painting.
Once you have lat/long in pure degrees, you will need to scale those values for proper scaled paiting.
Now you can use these coordinates as screen coordinates
