The activities hi place name collection and compilation to produce a reference document is the first of its kind undertaken by EMA. The total coverage of the country will follow the coverage of 1:50,000 scale topographic map of the country. The effort to strengthen the activities of producing a well organized place name document will continue at increased pace. However, we require exchanges of information with countries participating in the current United Nations Regional Cartographic Conference for Africa to know how each country is dealing with this activity. Particularly, the experience of each country in the digital place name database aspect will be of particular importance to help us in our efforts hi this regard.
