Gates Wants to Map Africa

In a Q & A before he retires from Microsoft on July 1, Gates mentioned that project. From C|net’s coverage:

He is also involved in a project to map all of Africa, using Microsoft resources as well as contributions from Gates himself and his foundation.

I wonder if they’ll use the Vexcel cameras?

The Q & A occurred before his keynote (with CEO Ballmer) at the Wall Street Journal’s D conference. That’s where the new touchscreen capabilities for Windows 7 were demoed. Interested in that? Video here.
