I totally agee that it's a good idea to work this out, I've been silent on
the matter because I'm far from clear
as to what is a good approach.

I'm currently wrestling with trying to get a handle on how we can tell
whether the ABS data is more geographically
accurate than yahoo or other data (not necessairly whether it is an accuate
reflection of the boundaries)

So, yes - thoughts please
