FAQs

 What is ManManPemba.com ?

ManManPemba.com is a project that is the legacy from a pre-quake venture called MobInfo ( www.mobinfohaiti.com) and a project called le3900.com .  In Le3900 project,  my team geolocalized around 7000+ local biz ( restau, shops, schools,  etc ). At this time before the quake, there was not so much attention around Haiti mapping in link with new technology.  The week after the quake, Google Maps contacted us to get access to all the data from the site in order to help the field operations. Most of the locations you would see after on Google Maps Port-au-Prince were given by MobInfo to Google !

ManManPemba.com is a much lighter project than le3900.com in terms of quantity of listings. This is not a yellow page directory, but a local city guide focusing on restaurants, hotels, tourism, shopping and leisure related activities where people can get important info and mainly write reviews about local places, browse all the events taking place in PaP or in the country ( cultural, social, etc ).
