The exact thing I'm looking for in my area is
1.) New streets - mostly from new subdivisions.
2.) Improved geometry for road centerlines - if and where it exists in
3.) Updates on road names / other changes I've missed.
I don't see this as a mass automated operation - it will be some sort of
manual operation assisted by tools where possible.
