Mapper since:
April 29, 2017

Based in Dasmarinas City, DP24 (DP stands for Dear Paul) himself does the expedition and research-based mapping within the home region (CALABARZON), as well as the birthplace (NCR) and various places across the Republic of the Philippines. Mapping will involve the bus and highway routes, local updates, humanitarian-based infrastructures, and data clean-up (whether highway or data privacy-related). Currently a Civil Engineering student with special needs on the approach to graduation and intern.

Don’t forget to tune-in to the all-new season of #Mapping101 Thursdays every Thursday on DP24 General TV via YouTube, Twitch, Twitter, and FB Watch.


As a current Civil Engineering student on the current 5th-year studies (incoming intern and graduate), buildings (including floor levels), bridges, highways (including material/surface conditions), tunnels that are supposed to be mapped are properly classified, identified, and validated on the ground. Also, formerly part of the City Scholarship Programme by the City Government of Dasmarinas and WeMap session LIVE, and currently a participant from the mappy (OpenStreetMap Philippines) community and producer, host for the following DP24 Media programming/stations online:

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the specialisations on your OSM contributions?

  • Route relations (involving ferries, buses, roadways/highways, bicycles)
  • Landuse areas (including conversion to multipolygon relations)
  • Buildings (residential, commercial, industrial)
  • Presence of accessibility features (elevators, tactile paving, wheelchair access)
  • Lane management, speed limits (compatible with OsmAnd)

What are the software used by DP24 to contribute to the OSM?
DP24 uses JOSM, OsmAnd, iD, StreetComplete for OSM editing through DP24 Media-operated laptop and smartphone.

Why do I use British spellings and terminologies on some changeset comments? Am I trying hard?
As you have noticed, I do self-learning on most British spellings and terminologies while on contribution as a way of training (just in case of going thru vacation once again). Although not trying hard to do those things, I would rather go thru long-term learning experiences. As of January 2021, DP24 has to revert to Philippine-based terminologies to suit the local preferences upon DM-based feedback.
