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.
