Hi Nick,

For the mappers to be able to use the georeferenced images within their
JOSM (or iD) editor, WMS/TMS would still be the best solution.

If you send me your village names maps .pngs, with the rough
georeferencing saved in a PicLayers plugin files, I could set them up
for you.

Best regards,
