It does not matter, satellite or aerial orthorectified imagery. Both 
methods of acquisition could be automated. But digitizing this imagery 
cannot be automated. At least not at the current level of technology.

The "organised mapping (unpaid)" is not vulnerable to delocalisation 
since it is done in local schools, universities, etc. But the "organised 
mapping (paid)" is vulnerable to delocalisation, as I wrote in my 
previous message. Since it makes economic sense to organize it in lands 
with low cost of living and consequently lower expenses (salaries).

When something has got an economic sense it may start to happen. For 
example, the massive phenomena of gold farming [1] in early 2000s.

So my point is that the "organised mapping (unpaid)" and "organised 
mapping (paid)" are not exactly identical in this respect.
