I have done some work on the coastline and rivers in and around Boston
and I think the coastline should be clear now. This should be
confirmed by tomorrows update of Coastline viewer and hopefully the
mapnik update thus week will be ok.
The bay in Boston is still not rendering properly yet. I am not sure
why yet but will keep plugging away it at.
There is some more 'grooming' needed of the coastline to get it to
follow reality a bit better, I have done the main bits but I am
probably done with that now.
Some of the rivers could also do with 'grooming' to get their edges to
match reality a bit better and some rivers still seem to be missing
entirely, however, again I have done what I am going to do.
Have a great mapping weekend!
