This is a Mapping Party for those who are antisocial.

The Sturt Highway travels across three States and requires a certain amount of co-ordination to finish mapping the road, the towns on it, the features along the way and anything else we see on our travels.

Those other mapping parties divide up the job into parts which they call slices, we will do the same but don't have to do all the slices at one time, simply doing what is feasible but not duplicating our efforts will help get the work done. The idea started on the mailing list about November 09 with some work in the South Australian Riverland split between travellers.

Just remember The Sturt Highway exists as a single relation from one end in Adelaide to the other end in NSW. The 'National Highway' is part of that relation The reference number changes between A20 and 20, so is not part of the relation, and is put on the ways themselves.

Starting with a list, maybe a table later, put down things which have been done and things which still need to be done. Put them in geographical order, travelling from west to east, please.
