I believe it was. The images I have seen are beautifully clear

JR is preparing the images at the moment and will start loading them  
up onto Flickr soon and we can then figure out what we can do with  
them. Hopefully someone will rectify some of them that form a nice  
mosaic, but that is certainly not something that I or JR will be  
doing. When they are rectified it should be possible to access them  
through Potlatch usingthe external link. Are there any experts it such  
stuff in the house?

Other people may just want to use them to identify features and  
position them by eye, or count the number of parking bays or the  
number of floors on a building.

Fyi, whe images are going to be licensed CC-BY (with ultimate  
copyright to RJ Peterson and ITO World Ltd), but we will make it very  
clear that the images can be used to derive mapping without any  
residual rights over derived data from the copyright holders if that  
makes sense.
