Hi Yannis,

I looked over the attached shape files.

The 3 smaller areas to the east, close to each other, those are well
mapped in OSM now it looks like and should be a good data source if
anyone is looking for buildings and roads data in those 3 areas.

The larger area SW of those, there is not high resolution imagery.

The larger area at the far SW, that one looks perfect for a mapping
project. It not all easy mapping, but not too difficult either.  It
looks like even small residential roads are mapped in that area, so it
should probably be "buildings only", which is good.

If this works for you, we can get a project set up.

Please let me know if I have misunderstood anything.

Regards,
Blake
