I did a quick for third party references, and the first one I spotted was a couple of paragraphs in the May 2005 Audubon Society magazines, the Jan 31, 2000 Pittsburgh Post-Gazette also mention them. --Salix alba (talk) 17:03, 31 August 2006 (UTC)

Hello, yes thank you. There are indeed many third party articles, as well as many about individual projects, but none containing very much (up to date) information. It's also unclear whether any of them contain anything about whatever Mattisse felt was needed. A few more recent and equally fluffy pieces (from LexisNexis):

AFD result notes[edit]

The AFD result was "keep". However the article does need cleanup of any remaining copyvios and POV issues as a matter of importance.

List of maps[edit]

I've removed the list of maps since GMS maintains a complete list of the hundreds of projects itself, and including such here is both redundant and infeasible. The inclusion of some notable maps might be warranted, but other than the first NYC map such decisions are likely to fall under the dreaded "original research." --Belg4mit (talk) 05:25, 17 March 2011 (UTC)
