Hi Brad,
If you want to use potlatch, try adding this to your background imagery
I’m not crazy about it – the imagery is a bit better in JSOM.  This is my first mapwarper tile so I’m open to suggestions.  Let me know if that works for you.

Was looking at helping with this job, but I'm not a JOSM user, and this seems to rely on the DigitalGlobe imagery, either for tracing or for figuring the offset.  Should Potlatch 2 users sit this out?  Is there any way to create some tiles of the DG imagery?  Thanks, Brad

The DigitalGlobe imagery is more recent (october 2012 vs 2010 for
Bing). What can be done for the buildings :
* Put an offset on the Bing imagery to fit the DigitalGlobe imagery
* Compare quickly Bing vs DigitalGlobe :
- If the buildings haven't changed, let's map with Bing
- If the buildings have changed a lot, or if the area is newly
urbanized, let's map with DigitalGlobe

Does it seem good to you ?
