Zoom In... Enhance... Now Zoom In Again

Algebra Level 2

In order to prevent tedious extra clicking, Google Maps uses a zoom system that grows or shrinks the map by a factor of 2 when a user clicks the zoom button. Assuming you were viewing an area on your screen with an actual width of 1000km, how many times would you have to click "Zoom In" to fill the same area on your screen with a postage stamp (width of 3cm) ?
