I have noticed many cases where there are holes in the coastline data.
One such area is Oban, where the coastline data has the tag
Another area was the island of Cumbrae, which had a large coastline
hole in it until I filled it in with reference to landsat.
Since Scotland (especially the West Coast) has a lot of coastline, these
holes are concentrated here.
I assume the PGS data is automatically generated from satellite photos,
and in these cases, there was a cloud in the way.
