Wow.  Took that right to the edge, didn't you? :-)

I started on the CA-side of Lake Ontario in December iirc, cleared it
in bits and pieces finishing yesterday.  Yesterday I tackled a piece
of Lake Michigan.  Cleaned perhaps 50km with better geometry from the
improved aerials.  Still room for improvement of course.  Some of that
coastline looks pretty odd from the air so the "line" isn't always
clear.  I cleaned up the last dodgy interchanges in the main highways
in Southern Ontario this week as well.

Since December-ish, I've been cleaning and re-surveying around
southern Ontario.  Many others were doing the same thing, so the load
was pretty light.

And I contacted a number of mappers, some of whom agreed and even
started mapping again.  So that was pretty cool.
