[Talk-scotland] Edinburgh and glasgow cakes

Agree it would be worthwhile setting up cakes to concentrate effort,
but don't think it needs to be a weekly thing.
Just set up an area of the city and wait until we get reasonable
completeness. There are not that many (maybe 10) areas the size of
Duddingston without buildings in Edinburgh, although Glasgow is that
much bigger.

Will need a bit of ground truthing once it has been traced, but that
can perhaps be done whilst picking up addresses. Plus might need local
knowledge to flag up areas where bing imagery is out of date (i.e. new
housing, or redevelopment).

Maybe set up a scale of completeness where 1 is just the roads (all
areas should be at least this) up to 5 for most details, 7 is all
buildings, and 9 once addresses and ground truth complete?

Cheers, Donald
