Start with a map of Middle-earth and go from there? I could give you my list of what I think are important locations that they missed out.

You need a map of Middle-earth and it didn't occur to you that you could google it?

And I am going to have to make up a list from my Fellowship of the Ring Book.

This is what I have deemed important.
! - I don't have a map of this, the others have already been made by others.
* - best to wait until the Hobbit has come out.

Mount Gundabad
Rhosgobel!*
Dimrill Dale*
Moria! (East Gate, West Gate!, Durin's Causeway!, Bridge of Khazad-dum!, Dwarrowdelf, Foundations of Stone!)*
Thranduil's Kingdom!*
Mountains of Mirkwood*
Barad-dur
Dur-thang!
Tolfalas
Dol Amroth
Far Harad!
City of the Dead
Erech!
Eregion!
Swanfleet
Tharbad
Ford of Bruinen!*
The Last Bridge*
Field of Celebrant!*

Also look at Rad's epic list

Here's the map i tend to use: http://media.giantbo..._earth_film.jpg
Also, Tolkien Gateway and LOTR Wiki are quite useful for building up info of a place once you've picked one. Depending on where you choose, you might also be able to find helpful bits in the books or the films. If you choose somewhere pretty obscure though, chances are you'll have to use a bit of imagination, based on what you can glean of it from the map.

Why not making a Gulf of Lhûn map ? (:
All that is gold does not glitter, Not all those who wander are lost; The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost. From the ashes a fire shall be woken, A light from the shadows shall spring; Renewed shall be blade that was broken, The crownless again shall be king.[1]

Well there you go, four good map ideas right there. If you were to do a Grey Havens map, you'd be able to take a lot out of the movies, but the others would allow for a lot of creativity as well.
