Zanzibar Schools ICT Data Collection

The review of the current datasets shows that most education data in the OSM have been lastly modified since four years ago. Those schools available schools currently in OSM miss important information like names, address and other education facilities. They also lack consistency due to the reason that different persons enter data in the OSM using different tools and features. Even though individual contribution in OSM is allowed, schools data and data for other educational facilities need to be collected and validated by authorised users before putting it to the OSM to ensure quality and relevance of the data set.
