osm-ph first mapping party

Our very first OSM Philippines Mapping Party @ Tagaytay City.

An OSM Mapping party – is where a group of openstreetmappers and novices descend on an area to map it exhaustively, usually over a weekend. It’s a very social event where people can meet up and talk (usually at a pub) in between mapping sessions.

Finally, opportunity to meet Pinoy OSMers to share mapping techniques and other things over beer.


  • When: Full day of May 16, 2009
  • Where: Tagaytay City
  • Target: map all roads, POIs and tourist attractions. The gameplan is to produce a comprehensive map suitable for basic navigation both for tourists and locals.


Uh oh, I don’t think I’ll be cycle mapping this one.

Be sure to check and edit the wiki if you want to join (or drop me a note here). Some people will be bringing along extra GPS units, so you can join  even if you don’t own one.

This is my first time to participate in OSM where we actually meet and map an area as a group and not only through the mailinglist and OSM usernames.

“Let’s volt innnn!!!!”
