This is Ohr POI's who made me spot rgc.cd site. A person in Kinshasa related to this site told me that some of the data is 6-7 years old but in general of good quality.
Talking of wiki, I created the following wiki page for this activation : http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/RD_Congo_Kivu
We are still in Pre-Activation but discussions are ungoing with UN agencies and
humanitarian NGO's to re-evaluate the situation and obtain Imagery through the US Dept of State.

>There are also many POI's with source_ref=www.rgc.cd. I contacted a person related to this site to see if there is more information to import from their database (license=ODbl).
>Some time ago I worked with the datasets from RGC. At that time I created a summary of the datasets on http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Talk:WikiProject_Congo-Kinshasa. I don't know if you have already seen this list which could serve as a basis for further work with the datasets. Also I don't know if the data currently available on www.rgc.cd has been updated or is still the same. The site went through a number of modifications over time and I think not all of the datasets listed in the wiki page are currently available on the website. But I have copies of the old datasets available.
>I guess that even the less accurate parts of the data from RGC could now be somewhat valuable when combined with the much better coverage with high-resolution Bing imagery.
