Palawan Philippines - from Puerto Princessa to Elnido

Posted by Totor on 4 May 2009 in English (English)

Hello everybody,
I just discovered openstreetmap before going on holliday to Elnido, so I decided to bring my laptop and GPS to follow the progression of my bus trip from the airport to Elnido.
GPS maps and good maps in general are relatively rare here in the Philippines, and openstreetmap is a great alternative.
Unfortunately the roads in Palawan were not so accurately mapped (traced from Yahoo ?).
Back home, I started correcting the roads I used and logged. I'm done just now...one month later. Wow this is really addictive...

Location: North National Highway, Sito San Dionisio, Palawan, Philippines

totor,

I just saw your edits today. Nice! Welcome to openstreetmap philippine community. I hope you continue editing palawan (not just roads, but also other coastlines, POIs, etc.). Palawan needs a lot of osm love.

Thanks for your comment Maning. I'll be editing Cebu-city from now on... It's where I live, and I do not have more useful gps tracks from Palawan.

OK then, we have very rough coverage of Cebu at the moment. I added a lot of POIS around the city (mostly banks, fuel, restaurants), from a GPS given by a freind. Hope you can improve the position and streets. If you have questions, just holler at our very own OSM-PH mailinglist http://lists.openstreetmap.org/listinfo/talk-ph

Welcome to OSM! Mappers in the Philippines are very much welcome. :-)
