A few more observations, probably not new to fellow importers,
- often when it seems UNMIL objects are placed in the mid of the jungle,
there is an isolated dwelling somewhere
- often when I encounter very different GNS vs. UNMIL place names in a
hamlet area it's worthwhile to look far outside (1km) for a UNMIL node that
matches the GNS node better. Voila, misplaced GNS node found.
- for the same reason I always do a final scan of the square, looking
for offroad GNS nodes that might match a lone UNMIL node. Usually I find
one or two.
- this is more controversial. We are told to keep A, B, C or #1, #2 in
place names. I don't question that in general. However when I find big
villages that have a GNS name (say Bopolu) in the center, and five UNMIL
names (say Bopolu A to E) very near to that, then I think it improbable
that Bopolu has five suburbs named so, because else the UNMIL objects would
be distributed much more evenly over the area. I have condensed it all into
one object (with 5 UNMIL ids so the are not lost) in such cases. I have had
less then five such cases so far, no worry. But it makes me speculate that
most names with additional A, B, C are automatically generated, because I
find that the larger the hamlet/village is the more such objects are found.
