Well, I used the Digital Globe images for Padang - from a quick look the 
Bing imagery for Yogyakarta looks at least as good for me. In Padang 
there were areas where you really had a hard time distinguishing 
individual buildings. I haven't come across the same in Yogyakarta yet.

But looking at the sheer amount of buildings and their density I 
honestly felt a bit discouraged. This would be a really huge task to map 
all those. So even if it could be mapped from Bing, images with higher 
resolution could make the task easier.
