Please don't change things unless you've actually been there and 
surveyed the item in question.  You can't possibly know that your 
changes better reflect the sense of the reality unless you have (or have 
contacted the original mapper in question to ask them).

As it says on

"Always remember that local knowledge beats a couch potato from central 
command any time!".
