If your locality has building code enforcement, they will tell you when you submit your plan. If you do not live in an inspection area, I usually place my posts/piers at no more than 10' apart, but it depends on the material you are using. 2x12 spans much farther than 2x8.

My company build alot of decks. I have found that I have less problems when I put the pier spacing every 4 or 5 feet. The customers like it also. It keeps the deck very sturdy and tight for years to come.
