OpenStreetMap

An opportunity to map out San Pablo via GPS traces

Posted by ianlopez1115 on 31 July 2008 in English (English)

I needed to find a better opportunity to get a GPS device (or whatever they call it), through GPStogo.

I also found an opportunity to map more areas of San Pablo City, through the upcoming Milo Marathon, (to be held on Sunday, August 24, 2008 to be specific about it).

The problem is that time and money are the enemy. And I am competing in the 5K competition, due to my young age.

I think that THIS is a good opportunity to expand the reach of OSM to the City of Seven Lakes. I have added some streetnames and improved the coverage in the poblacion (downtown) area and in areas near my home. Also, have you seen a "kinda big" improvement in Bicol (Connecting the Maharlika Highway from Lopez, Quezon to possibly Libmanan, Camarines Sur via Tagkawayan, Quezon)? I did that. And there are too much FIXME tags almost all over Laguna.

GPStogo could be very promising for a person like me. Since it gives a big opportunity to every OSM contributor in the developing countries, including the Philippines.

But since I can't wait, maybe I need a basic GPS device that can help in my contribs.

Since I don't have much time, I have to end this.

Location: IV-C, San Pablo, Laguna, Calabarzon, 4000, Philippines

Looks like there are a handful of unnamed roads to be done.
Good luck with GPStogo.
