Base preparation for above ground swimming pool

Any tips for preparing the ground for installing small (12') above ground swimming pool?

The suggestions i found on the web seems to be all over the place so just want to see what actual works.

Did you get the permit and fence done ?

12' isn't exactly small. How deep is it? What is the location like that you plan on putting it. There's typically a lot more questions that just preparing the ground. There's also a few threads on this, you can search.
