towns and town names (multiple names especially)
roads (in-town roads as well) and trails
displaced persons camps
orphanages / shelters etc
border crossing points
markets and large gatherings of cattle
Re-nomadic camps, cattle area...I would think that local knowledge is
required, for both mapping and naming. Anyone else have suggestions?
Indeed features such camps & cattle areas require local contribution which I hope to engage next week when I am in Sudan. In the meantime, I agree we should continue adding what we're able to.
Many thanks to all

Thanks for your detailed answer. I was just wondering. My experience from most southern African countries for at least the last one two years is that you can get edge/2G almost everywhere where you have normal network coverage. I love to see that happening. But I wasn't to sure about southern Susan. Another thing that I hve experience is that far to many locals ( even with smartphone) don't know to little about the possibilities of there own networks. And it's not even the price but the simple spread of information. I've seen more people using mobileinternet effitiently in Zimbabwe ( you can managed to Facebook the whole with about a dollar) thn in Malawi where you only pay a quarter of the price. And even staff of international organisation often knows far to little about the mobile Internet. So if there is any mobile Internet in south Sudan people could try to post manual and instructions (settings) here and informations about prices and coverage.
How to use phones as a modem etc. And spread the information there.
