Hi, did you create the Montreal IMG file (how often do you update it?? can
we get a link to it on the main Canada page?) , or are you the one who make
the cloudmade website??

Im right now trying to figure out if its technically possible to incorporate
tabhe Ibycus Topo Mapset, with OSM Canada Data. (just waiting to hear back
from the owner)

I tried to download the OSM file (from cloudmade), and my computer
crashed... as its too big.  It should be split to Canada North (NTW/YK/NV)
and canada west/east at the ontario/manitoba border... that would make the
file smaller. .. or a zip file of each province..

It would be possable to overlay the OSM Canada data from each city thats
relitevly complete onto the Ibycus topo Maps.   .. as its a separate entity.
.. Standalone PDF file.

Cheers,
Sam
