Data on the changes in voting district delimitations in SA is available as a series of maps (no shapefiles made official). I'd like to create a shapefile by scraping the boundaries from the individual pdf's and putting them together. Is it viable? What would be the easiest/fastest/best way? Ideally the process would be automated.
