There is a balance between mapping large areas that are dominated by that landuse and individually mapping each farm/residence with its landuse.

The mapper makes their best choice between detail and work load. If someone does not 'like' it that can modify it,
hopefully to improve it rather than just deleting it!

I'm presently mapping residential areas ... getting tired of the detail I'm putting in,
I've noted other entries with less detail.
As the rendering is substantially the same I see little point in continuing with the detail I have been putting in and
may go with less detail and cover more of the map quickly that way.
