I don't know if there's a general wiki for fresh mappers; if so, it should
point out the use of shadows casted by artifacts (stright dark lines) and
comparison with reference elements (ie: trees). 

As far as I've seen, in northern Nepal most of buildings are out of tree
canopies and we should be able to detect their shadows. Besides, a collapsed
building often shows the rectangular shape of roof, but no shadow.
