    If you're planning on doing it in Photoshop, set it up how they said 602x169.3 inches at 32 dpi … and work away. Why design it at a higher dpi? If you really want to though you could set it up at 60.2x16.93 inches at 320 dpi (1/10 the size, 10x the dpi) … but it won't change anything. It's still the same number of pixels.

      602 inches x 169.3 inches at 32 dpi = 60.2 inches x 16.93 inches at 320 dpi = 6.02 inches x 1.693 inches at 3200 dpi

      60.2 inches x 16.93 inches at 320 dpi
      If you divide the dimension by 10, you must multiply the resolution by 10.

      6.02 inches x 1.693 inches at 3200 dpi
      If you divide the size by 100, you must multiply the res by 100.

      Note: Changing dimensions will not reduce your file size. When your physical size goes down, your resolution must go up proportionately.
      Sketching not only helps you work out good ideas, it helps you get past the bad ones.

        Thank you Pantoshi...I can actually work with those figures...I hate being mathematically challenged.

        By the way...this is a fantastic Forum...thanks for being there!

          Glad to have been of some help. Multiples of 10 are way easier to calculate than inches to feet (x12). It's simple once you get over the intimidation of math.

            Just remember when working in scale to use your measurement palette to align things.
            A 0.03 error in alignment at 1:10 will be more than 1/4 error at final size.

            And don't forget your bleeds.

            Technically, when doing a billboard, you get the printing dimensions (bleed, face, and safety) from the billboard company, the scale to use and the resolution (usually 1:10 @ 300ppi so you aren't too far off.)

            They're still using paper in Canada? Most billboards down here are stretched vinyl.
