Thanks very much for doing this - I've been quite curious about where
we're up to. I had guessed we were about on par - so this is good
news. I've been doing a fair bit of aerial mapping lately - not sure
whether remapping or not. I tend to be pretty conservative with road
classifications on a first pass. Later, I might look at the area and
upgrade a couple of the roads.
