A natural conclusion is to improve in place.  I like the way Steve says natural edges to split, as that might become where somebody in the future falls off at that edge with data in a better place, improving our map.  Post FMMP can get chewy ooy gooey, don't I know it.  Sometimes a chunk is worth editing around to "about right now, given what I know," sometimes it gets deleted as noise.  Up to you.  We are contributors who sign our work.

Good to share some history, good to share ideas of future growth.

Trails, etc. were easy to do from my Garmin tracks and satellite imagery but working with the existing land use/cover was so frustrating I nearly decided not to touch it.
