"That's a great idea!  Haha I've been told the roads don't even have names in most areas. Maybe I can get the locals to do that, and who knows maybe name a few myself. I've also found that a couple of the towns are on Google…"

About Me:
I am an Electrical Engineering student at The Ohio State University. I love adventure and exploring.
Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
I have had several RC vehicles in the past, and have read and seen a LOT about quatcoptors and other UAVs online (PopSci, YouTube, TED, etc). I am going on a 3 week service trip to Ghana this summer and want to propose a project using UAVs to take aerial views of the town that has lots of roads but no basic road mapping.
