Is a question asking for mathematical formula for converting meter coordinates into pixels on topic for this site?

To clarify even more, if I have a point A( 30 meters, 56 meters ) in real life, and wish to display it on computer screen, would a question asking for mathematical formula that converts A into pixels be on topic?

    I'll leave to others to answer but I suspect not. I say this because unless you are also dealing with Geographic or Projected Coordinate Systems (which are on-topic here, and much harder to deal with) the units you assign seem irrelevant and point A is just a Cartesian Coordinate that could be expressed as (30,56).

It looks like no answers have been offered yet so I will formalize my comment which is that I think it is off-topic (but not by much).
