There has been discussion on a few lists about sourcing local datasets for Workshops and Demos at FOSS4G 2008. 

Please post all your answers or offerings here, so there's a central place people can go to: http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/South_African_Geodata 

Whether it is a download, CD, DVD or live service, please add the details to the above wiki page for the benefit of all.

Subject: [OSGeo Africa] available Africa data for demos?

Hey all, my organization is hoping to show off some demos of the 
software we work on (GeoServer, GeoWebCache, OpenLayers), for the FOSS4G 
conference in Capetown.  I was wondering if anyone on this list might 
have pointers to some good Africa data that we could show off in demos. 
Capetown would be great, but really anywhere in Africa would be nice. 
We'd prefer truly public data that we could redistribute, but we could 
also make sure that we don't give it to anyone else, we just show it off 
on our computers.  And we'd be happy to credit data providers.  Raster 
or Vector data would both be great, and we should be able to show off 
some really nice stuff with Google Earth, how setting up GeoServer with 
the data can make it so you can use Google Earth even if you don't have 
internet connectivity.

thanks in advance to anyone who can help us out,
