When you complete plotting or tracing all required information on your overlay, you print the marginal

the following (see figure 1-10).
(1) Classification. The security classification must correspond to the highest classification of
the map or the information contained on the overlay. If unclassified, so state.
NOTE: The classification also must be placed at the top center and the bottom center of the overlay.
(2) Title. The title tells the reader the purpose or objective of the overlay.
(3) Time and date. Your overlays should contain the latest information when you prepare it.
