Simliar to John, but at 30m. I find using a consistent zoom level helps you
notice buildings since they will be a consistent size. Thanks John for the
<ctrl>. I had been using mouse with constant check to the latitude ;-)

For finding buildings, I find it really useful to have a filter building=*,
with Hide, and toggle it on/off after I think I have all the buildings in a
village. Ones you have missed really show up with the rectangles gone.
