dave --

several of the files seem to be about twice as large as their name
would suggest:

 500MB-lon_-76.22_to_163.08.2015-11-30.gmapsupp.img  2015-12-03 20:47 900M
 1000MB-lon_-80.35_to_163.08.2015-11-30.gmapsupp.img 2015-12-03 20:48 1.8G
 2000MB-lon_-89.69_to_163.08.2015-11-30.gmapsupp.img 2015-12-03 20:49 3.6G

intentional?
