To make Cambodia our own on OSM, we are planning an update marathon for Saturday, 26th May:
OpenStreetMap 12hr Update Marathon 1
Cambodia is in need of the following:
district and province boundaries, protected areas, revision of roads classification in Phnom Penh (too many primary and secondary roads), deletion of duplicate roads southwest of Wat Phnom, addition of roads to Sihanoukville, adding of railway line to Sihanoukville and Poipet, addition of building footprints to Phnom Penh, and the OSM Cambodia wiki needs updating!
House32 have graciously offered their office and internet connection for the marathon, including a livestream of the volunteers so everyone can watch us in action over the web! John also said that he will encourage House32 staff to attend as he wants them to know OSM well. Sophas Uch, someone who works for GIZ that I met at the Phnom Penh Mapping Meetup, is also in the process of contacting the lecturers in charge of GIS at Royal University of Agriculture, as it will be good to have student involvement.
