I imagine that at least some of that is auto-imported AND
data, which was quite a bit off for Delhi for some reason.

Is the imagery that bad that one cannot identify roads even
with actual GPS tracks?

We have tonnes of GPS tracks, but I am not finding the time to
map them, despite many promises. Would someone be willing to
take up the work if we make GPS tracks available? Maybe it is

Sarai some weekend if there are enough people interested (please
email me off-list to express interest). We can also probably
find volunteers to get tracks for South, and North Delhi.
