My graduation project is to implement the GeoCameroun. It is a mapping
portal Cameroon, accessible to all based on OSM.

More than just a portal, the project aims to use OSM as urban management

what is already done:
- From 2010 to 2012, I did some field missions (mainly in Yaoundé)
- July-August 2012 with a group of 4 students we educate local students on
the osm  project
- This year from March 11 to April 8, with the support of EUROSHA Cameroon,
Cameroon OSM community has been launched.
- We conducted a conference and some training in JOSM
- I furrowed some streets of the capital and other cities in Cameroon (Limbe,
Bertoua, Buea) with video system board (GPS + Camera). This permit direct
measurement of the coordinates (x, y, z) on images with a centimeter
- We have received permission to import some public data in OSM (forest
roads, student projects) (http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/GeoCameroun)
- The scripts to generate OSM files (Ogr2Osm, OSGeo4W ...)
- A dedicated account for imports (

 What remains to be done:
- Finish the project documentation on the wiki OSM (I will finish it as
soon as possible, I just have other more pressing issues for the moment)
- finish the discussion with the local community on the national data to
- my internship report will naturally be public.

 Do not hesitate to contact me for any information about the project (
