General

Most of Zimbabwes major cities are well covered with Bing Satellite images (most of them dated 2012-06 check coverage here). But there is a lot of mapping to do in order to have a basic coverage including Roads, Rivers etc.

Since this WikiProject page doesn't have a real structure I think it is the best to list everything which is useful in a way to improve the database quality. Feel free to edit!

Mines in Zimbabwe / landuse=quarry

There is a 2010 report from the U.S. Geological Survey Mineral Ressource Program (http://minerals.usgs.gov/minerals/pubs/country/2010/myb3-2010-zi.pdf) which lists around 70 mines (cobalt, copper, gold, nickel, lithium etc.) in Zimbabwe. Can be useful as a hint for naming the mines.
