   I have traveled through several TIGER deserts and performed alignment 
based on my GPS tracks.   I aligned side roads at the intersections, but 
did not continue aligning the side roads to their endpoints because I 
did not have a GPS track for reference; often the road disappears under 
trees, and at times the TIGER way for a main road went down a side road 
by accident.   Without a GPS track it was hard to know for sure.   Many 
of those now have very accurate TIGER data now.

    In summary, in my opinion, I would rather have all the new 
alignments in the .OSC and manually review them all - they often point 
to something else that needs to be corrected anyway.

   I haven't found any major problems with the points I've looked at; 
I'll know more when there is an easy way to review the effects of each 
proposed alignment change.
