On September 2, 2009; I was inspired by Rebecca Wanjikuâ€™s article; Free Wi-Fi hotspot locator in Nairobi to also write on Free Wi-Fi Hotspots In Accra which pointed out the various FREE Wi-Fi spots in Accra about 2-years ago.
This morning, one of my tech and social media mentors; Erik Hersman shared the link to the Nairobi Wi-Fi map which made me decide on creating and developing the Wi-Fi Map for Accra.
The site is designed and built on the Crowdmap platform by the Ushahidi Team from Kenya. Its allows you to
- Collect information from cell phones, news and the web.
- Aggregate that information into a single platform.
- Visualize it on a map and time-line.
Accra Wi-Fi Hotspot map will provide data on all Wi-Fi hotspots located in the heart of Accra. The various categories include:
- FREE Wi-Fi Hotspots
- Hotels & Guest Houses With Wi-FI
- Cyber Cafes & Coffee Shops
I entrust all dwellers, visitors, bloggers and techies in Accra to feed in enough data unto the site. Visit the site: http://accrawifi.crowdmap.com/ and submit a report of all Wi-Fi Hotspot youâ€™ve accessed recently. You can also submit a report by texting to the number: (+233) 262.220.210
