Google Mapping of Ndop Town
With the advent of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in Africa in general and Cameroon in particular, it has proven that the rate of development in terms of ICT is slow and the benefits of ICT are not fully realised in developing countries (site Source: www.parliament.uk/documents/post/postpn261.pdf ). From observations on the Google Map, in Cameroon only big cities like Douala and Yaounde are labelled on the map with streets and places. In this regard, town and communities like Ndop Town are left out in the sense that institutions, routes/streets, hospitals, hotels, fuel stations, government offices, businesses, etc are not found on the Google Map thereby making it difficult for visitors and fellow inhabitants to find their way out; thats where Dankie NGOKETUNJIA Project comes in by adding these major places on Google Map so that with a phone, PDA, or laptop/computer connect with Internet servicer you can get locations of these major places. The 'Dankie NGOKETUNJIA' Project is an ongoing project that is focus on providing accessibility in Ndop Town especially those entering Ndop Town for the first time, in other words this project is purposed to google map Ndop Town, that is mapping major institutions, hospitals, government offices, businesses, hotels, etc on the Google Map. With these major places and roads of Ndop Town mapped on Google Map making it easier for Visitors and Inhabitants that it will be possible to have a direct and positive effect on the development of Ndop Town and its communities.
