Thank you both for your feed back.

John, what you say makes sense. So, for those who hang around, it goes 
back to good training, reading up on image interpretation, experience, 
knowing your limits and mentor ship (as Pierre suggests).
Pierre, I shall review the link, thanks.

Unfortunately a number of validated tiles have been identified as not 
being of high quality.  Self validation is one of the issues.

The second issue is time, it appears 76% of our new mappers only map for 
a day and never return.  We need to make best use of that time so we 
need tasks they can do easily with minimal training to get the most out 
of them.

Cheerio John
