Sure. If you ask someone what the weather is like these days they are
as likely as not to look at their phone as look out the window.

Although, apparently Gregories used to add insignificant deliberate

and many paper maps include 'cadastral' roads: Roads which some local
authority approved, but which never actually got built.
