 Capturing individual points is rather tedious, but I've had pretty good 
 luck getting myself to write down start/end addresses for each side of a 
 street I'm driving and do interpolation. With a better camera solution, 
 it wouldn't be too hard to do points, but I haven't come up with 
 something that's easy, has good resolution, and has good automatic 
 exposure. And small.
