Aileu District East Timor

Posted by matthewsheffield on 4 October 2019 in English (English)

I think I’ve mapped all the highways and residential areas in the Aileu district of East Timor. It took about five weeks all told. It’s a neighbouring country, and one that Australia has tried to deliberately fuck over (the Witness K debacle still isn’t settled), so I wanted to improve their maps. There’s a coffee business, Wild Timor Coffee that’s linked to that area, run by Australian for the co-benefit of the Timorese, so that’s another link to the place.

Anyhow, I hope it helps trade, health, tourism, and encourages locals to improve the map themselves now there’s more there to go with….

Location: Fahisoi, Aileu, East Timor
