Are you saying we can't use Landsat either? I assumed that since it didn't
have any restrictive copyright conditions/terms of use, it was OK to use. I
have used Landsat to judge the position of the occasional point (a
minority) but can't remember exactly when I used it.

If there is a real risk of Landsat not being acceptable, I'll probably have
to ask Steve to delete *all* my data as a precaution (and say goodbye to 18
months worth of mapping work) :-(
