I've just checked in Lakewalker, a tool that can be used to
automatically generate coastline data from NASA's Landsat imagery. I've
used it to trace a lot of the lakes and islands in my area; an example
can be seen at
The resulting data is significantly higher resolution than the PGS
import, and can be used in areas where there is no PGS data.
Lakewalker resides in
svn.openstreetmap.org/applications/utils/import/lakewalker, and requires
Python and the Python Imaging Library. Minimal documentation is
available in the README and with the --help option.
If you have questions or suggestions, feel free to email me directly or
look for me on #osm.
