It seems we like areas with a lot of detail. The sprint is here to stay, and even shorter/more detailed formats are being invented. These are mostly held in urban areas. But on the way to some of our rural maps we pass a lot of old-established farmyards, with buildings, big old trees, hedges, fences, disused machinery, and sheep yards.

The tendency to seek out detail is accelerating. In some areas it has surpassed common sense, with wiggles the size of a double pace shown on the map. Just back from Oz, and reminded of the pleasure and challenge of crossing vague, featureless terrain. We need more.
