As the sole mapper (currently) in Victoria, I can give you a pretty
good idea of what needs to be done. I suggest we meet downtown and
spread out from there, as there are some unmapped areas near downtown
and tonnes a bit further away.

I will have been in contact with a geography prof at a local college
(where in fact, I am going to be taking Geography next year) and he
might be able to bring out some local students.
