IMHO if you can't identify individual buildings because you are working
from remote and don't know the area and the aerial imagery is not sharp
enough, you simply shouldn't map individual buildings and refrain from
using the building tag. Use the landuse tag, map the areas and wait for
better imagery, or use alternative methods if you are on the ground and
know how to do it.
