Wow, that's awesome. If you, or someone else who knows their way around
gdalwarp and mapnik, fancies doing this to a few of the photos (eg some of
the more top-down ones with lots of houses in might be good) and sharing the
URL, I'll happily do some tracing.

Yeah, that'd be cool.

That'd be cool too.


P.S are there any photos of the airplane and photographer? Would be good to
use for telling the story of this little project.
