Ditto Gregory

Quality looks similar to the digitization of pdf plans in France. The raw 
outline may be vaguely useful, but a lot of fine detail simply gets lost? The 
digitized versions may be useful as sources for details to be manually copied, 
but fully automatic importation is to be avoided!

As with the French data, and a lot of third party data, the main problem when 
working with an historic view is combining objects which are the same between 
different maps. Has a building shape changed because it's a new building, or has 
had an extension for example.
