Most of the data came right from our CAD data, so those buildings should be spot on.

Some of them really got into it, others did what was required. It's a good litmus test for when you need students for paid internships...

I'm looking into Mapnik or CloudMade tiles without backgrounds to use as a annotation layer on top of high-res aerial photography for our official campus map. I think it'll look great and attract students to OSM via our program.
