The thread here earlier was about the Tiger maps being a couple
hundred feet off, wasn't it?

There is no "making your own maps" to xastir.  I have 2003 street
level data for any part of the US, simply by downloading the map and
placing it in the correct directory.

I don't personally find the maps to be ugly either...  It shows a line
for a road - only so many ways to represent a road...

Just one user's point of view anyway..
