Thanks, wow thats awsome, although i'll need a 1km wide by 13,000 km
box, but thanks to wiki, its possable :)
i'll post a chart, and a section for poi related to this trackset.
Along with the OSM Point standard.
I looks like most of the major cities have been, compiled and posted
as downloadable maps (hopefully using the same square tile outline as
the ibycus topo) - thanks to everyone making maps :)
note: i think its best to post my endless bits and bytes as another
section on the wiki project site, and leave this message group for
happy canada day yesterday!
