and if you wonder why the patches look how they look. checkout this population map. it's pretty obvious that what they have works well for them. all the cities are mapped, all the somewhat populated areas. it's just that from high above when you're really looking at the US, it might not look as great.
but it turns out, that nope, the data is fine. it's great actually. it's just not all imported yet. since about 2014 canadian mappers & others have been importing from CanVec. it's a government source, high resolution, open! it's also huge.
the google doc they use for coordinating as THOUSENDS of lines and importing one of the patches is a ton of specialized work. for which they have youtube tutorials and wiki pages setup.
