20 megs sounds like a reasonable 'Max volume' for 1 (sane) person to
deal with. :@)
The Victoria area is/was 50 megsish, which caused me a headache as i
lost interest when it got close to about 20 megs, and my work became
sloppy as a result.
Thats a great reason why the Sidney suburb area isnt mapped yet. :)
Fortunatly, in Vancouver Adam figured out how to cut the area into 25
'squares' so it would be easier for people to deal with. He used the
method (or a similar one) that Emelie mentioned.
