GPS track logs

Most areas in Ghana have less detailed or cloudy imagery. GPS track logs that can be recorded with a GPS Device or smartphone. Try OSMtracker (Android).

Please Note:



  • Bing aerial imagery
  • DigitalGlobe
  • MapBox Satellite Sometimes only option where there is no Bing coverage
  • Map Library has basic administrative boundaries of Ivory Coast, but is completly outdated. In OSM there are yet boundaries of districts and regions who are based on Map Mibrary, but up to date (2014).
  • Perry-Castañeda Library Map Collection has various maps. For Ghana see [1].
