Certainly it's quite a bit of work to trace imagery, something I'll only do
for some small areas that I have interest in. However if I can significantly
improve the quality of Virginia's coast through merging
NOAA/NGA/USGS/Virginia/county data without much difficulty, I think it's a
valuable effort.

Too bad the coastline error checker has been dead for over a year.
