FYI, I am working on the Cooks River Cycleway which I mapped over 
2005-2006 and can do the M7 cycleway if needed. I've been able to 
re-create a map of my efforts from a January 2007 planet dump so have 
1,000+ streets and paths over NSW and QLD that I can re-map using Bing 
imagery. Dalby, Port Macquarie, Laurieton and some coastal villages are 
done. Brisbane and Toowoomba look good so I am now working on Sydney. 
Mostly this is Ultimo, Pyrmont, CBD, The Rocks, Elizabeth Bay and cycle 
trips around the eastern suburbs coast down to Cronulla.

May I ask armchair mappers if they would not mind mapping in streets as 
highway=road instead of highway=residential? Otherwise they look "done" 
and I miss them. Putting source=Bing also helps me know that you have 
not ground-surveyed them and that my older data may still be good.

Good luck to everyone on the ground with the remapping, alas I no longer 
live in Australia,
Mike Collinson
