Abstract

Abstract Current frameworks for locating urban features in traditional urban areas of Western Africa have so far not neem helpful in building digital data bases because the arrangement and development of towns makes it difficult to exclusively identify features. In this paper, large-scale aerial photographs and existing maps in Nigeria are used to design a framework, widely applicable in Western Africa, which makes it possible to digitize locations of urban features at great detail.
