[HOT] How to use field papers in high density areas

In such dense areas, where imagery cannot show enough details and where GPS measure are not precise enough with the surrounding buildings, the best is to first find alternative ways to trace the alleys between the buildings. Go on the roofs to obtain more precise measures? Or other ways?

Once the OSM map is edited, then the best is to print a detailed OSM map to go on the field and estimate the distances over the alleys to spot information.

I am trying to map the details of the area show in the following fieldpaper atlas: http://fieldpapers.org/atlas.php?id=qt4glxpr#16/29.9633/31.2530

but faced problems when navigating the highly dense area show in sector B2 of the aforementioned atlas.

Namely identifying the which streets we were at on site, and associating streets and building to whats on the satellite image on the field paper.

Sadly, using a GPS device is not an option to match where I am on the map and associate it to the field paper.

What the solution in such cases? Is there something I am missing?
