The first State of the Map Tanzania conference in December was a great success and had a huge impact on the mapping community in Tanzania. 177 people attended, travelling from all over Tanzania and 9 other countries for the 3 day conference. The first day was mostly around the impact of mapping for Tanzania and the subsequent two days for practical workshops to develop mapping skills, led by mappers from Ramani Huria and Heidleberg University, Germany. The conference was attended by government officials, NGOs, and health workers as well as community and youth mappers and was featured on two TV stations and the national newspaper.
