This is interesting. I am in an oilfield work camp right now in Angola, in the exclave province of Cabinda. We have a minefiled around the camp that was laid here by the Cuban army. Due my client's restrictions, we are not allowed to wander beyond the camp, but I do have in mind to see some of the countryside by motorcycle at some later date when I come back for another client. Is this type of mapped data available on Angola proper? There are lots of landmines in the country, and if these markers have been made public, that would be most useful to me.

Thanks,

Z
