This weekend I'm going to Darwin (plane, car not fixed yet) and that city has 
a lot of streets done by Yahoo, no names, not much detail.
So on foot, should I be photographing all the street signs or walking up and 
down every street trying to get a GPS trace?

My main technical interest is whether the work in Darwin requires redoing as 
there has not been an adequate georeferencing of the photogrammetry.

(for you lot - are the streets in the right place on the ground or are we 
several hundred metres out overall)

I can't see a problem with anyone adding from any source PROVIDED it is 
How else will we get Darwin mapped?
