OpenStreetMap

Preparing to get "Lost" in Paranaque

Posted by backpacking philippines on 1 June 2011 in English (English)

I'm going to a baptism of a friend's daughter on saturday somewhere in paranaque and peeked in advance in OSM to compare the map furnished to me.

the roads were correct but some road names do not match. my friend's map was hand-drawn, not to scale but bear some names absent in OSM.

I've been to her residence two years ago when I got lost due to a wrong turn on France rather than on Russia and blamed the previous map given to me

this time would be easier since my friend took note of the inaccurate map comment thus the new one :P

but this time, I have OSM on my side, no problem going to the resort as I've added it already thru BING but I can't find Mary Immaculate Parish there :(

Not the Immaculate Conception, I suppose? http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=14.470486&lon=120.992623&zoom=18&layers=M

That place has way too many churches!

sdoerr,

it's not it still. i've added the POI. the map of my friend indicated don lauro avenue but it's on conglomerate per OSM. she's been there so probably correct or a stretch is really don lauro avenue

the POI is here http://osm.org/go/4zhB469Ff--
i will update my map tomorrow and use to route but i don't think there'll be routing problems too as i've been to that area before but not to the church

thanks for the help, i didn't expect someone to reply to this post :P
