Data Location


There is no national zipcode system in use in Cameroon. The Government has a project with the African Development Bank to build such a database for 2015 year. But there is data of the national administrative boundaries, produced by the National Institute of Cartography. This institute produces even guides for regions, cities and villages. But these guides aren't free of charge.
