Hi All,

To help with village names, a public domain US Army Map Service
1:1,000,000 map (from 1962) that includes South West of Côte d'Ivoire is
available as WMS from the Relief Map Warper.

WMS URL link:

WMS URL link for JOSM:

It was georeferenced simply with the printed lat/lon of the four corners.

Feel free to do the same with 1:250,000 maps if you feel it could be
useful. Or let me know.

Best wishes,
