Hi all,

Cambodia OpenStreetMap Update Marathon 2 is on this Sunday from 8am at
House32 on St 178 in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

If anyone on this list is in Phnom Penh, please feel free to come along.
Here is the event page on Facebook:

https://www.facebook.com/events/304036733025065/

You can see in the agenda there that we have a few things we plan to do! I
am also interested, however, in the types of features we should be putting
on OSM for HOT purposes. What types of buildings etc would you recommend we
add to the map? Also, if anyone has any datasets of Cambodia to help in
this process, we'd love to hear about it!

Kind regards,

Wil
