Is there a right way to do it? Where should the 0:0 point be to get the perfect map?
Where your 0:0 point is, is your decision. I have set my 0:0 point to Providence(Boston) because it is so easier to tell someone the coordinates to find something.

It is recommended that you have some overlapping tiles.
It means you can't insert automatically the somewhere point if it has no connection to any tile in your archive.
But you can manually insert it if you know the exact coordinates. Just copy one or more tiles into the "5" folder with the right coordinated name.
Best way for me is, that i walk from a new somewhere point to a known point. Like after porting from limers front to my claim or group with someone who stay in a known point and follow the arrow.
Then you can merge the Session to your archive and you can continue to explore around your now know-where point and automatical merge will work fine.
If you have a long way, like me with an Alt last days and you have more Sessions from the somewhere point to the well known point, then i always merge the sessions in reverse order.
I move the session folder one for another in my session-merge folder of the tool until i have reached the somewhere point.
