Hi Ian,

As you are mapping, if you could save the url of the locations you think 
show the types of things you are talking about above and then send them 
to me or the list I would really appreciate it.

It is sometimes hard for me to know what people need examples of as I 
sort of mentally skip over things I am already familiar with.

If you are using iD you can just copy paste the url from the web 
browser, if you are using JOSM, click on the coordinates in the lower 
left of the screen and then copy/paste the url from the last box in the 
dialog that pop up.

You can collect some of them together in a list and then send them as a 
group or individually, whatever works best for you.

Anyone can feel free to send URLs to me or the list of things you think 
should go in an imagery or mapping tips guide.
