I was planning on putting together a how-to guide for townland mapping and
some other stuff at the meetup that should hopefully answer all the various

Is their certain tags that we should use to indicate townlands, and when you
say that certain percent is done is this down to house/building  level or is

looking forward to meeting up on Saturday will be an interesting day.
hopefully will get a nice bit of work done.



regards, 

John
