How about a lightweight version of this, for the rather common situation
where the power infrastructure follows the roads, and the mapping won't be
detailed due to lack of micro-mapping energy? Think miles and miles of
rural highway... are you planning to trace each road? Can't you map a lot
more power, if you can leverage the road geometry?
We have lots of geometry that follows roads: sidewalks, bike lanes,
cycleways, contraflow cycleways, kerbs. Why not power?
if someone later wants to come along and map each pole, wire and bird nest,
no problem! * But the first level approximation is "are there a lot of
wires running overhead or not"? * Only when the power lines diverge from
roads is a separate way strictly necessary.
