did some homebrewn statistics (take it not too serious) about how the recent Mapping activities for Niger progressed.
I found this in the OSM Niger country file from Aug, 12:
Total # of Places: 126
# place=country: 1
# place=city: 3
# place=town: 46
# place=village: 52
# place=hamlet: 13
# place=airport: 1
# place=locality: 9
# place=suburb: 1
126 mapped places is not that much. The Niger GNS Export from zenfunk lists 31493 places.
But the good news is that i found 742 duplicates in the GNS Export :-)
So we just need to investigate another 31493-742-126=30625 places.
I will run my stats script next week or so again to see how far we got.
Visit the Niger Wiki page under http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/WikiProject_Niger for further infos.
Greetings & Happy mapping
