all of them should look exactly the same also if done by several (well
coordinated) people that work in collaboration. If they instead trace
a lake, river or forest from aerial imagery or from gpx-traces you
will get similar looking but completely different drawings (number and
position of individual nodes) by different people.

valid for your examples and as long as it is only about "facts" and
not about interpretation or generalisation.
