Question for the group

Our new Product Manager wants to make a "map" of our product as an
exercise to understand how everything fits together and a starting
point for identifying missing features and possibly redesigning work
flows. His idea is to combine screen shots to create process flows on
a large scale, then print everything out on our huge plotter printers.

My question is, what would be the preferred software for creating a
document that contains a lot of images and where the document size
might be measured in feet rather than inches? For example, what do you
use when designing banners for marketing displays? Or creating data
dictionaries for databases?

I've got Visio and InDesign available to me, and could probably get my
hands on other software. Although I think CAD would probably be
overkill for this project.
