On the last few days, mapping activity around Batangas City, where I map a lot, from POI’s, power networks (NGCP and Meralco), and buildings, have been increasing. And while I added many POI’s and street names (mostly the very familiar ones) in that city, there is a lot still missing, that locals are working on. Some local users in Batangas City that started mapping their city includes:
Looking at their edit history, almost all are mapping within Batangas City, and are possibly local.
Yet, as they are still new, mapping mistakes may still occur, and they can be cleaned up once spotted. And increased mapping activity in Batangas City is good news that locals there are inspired to map, thanks to all my efforts to map there, and the mapping activity for Project NOAH-ISAIAH (now defunct from February 28, 2017, but validation work is still continuing). And looking at the Google Map Maker “graduation” at March 31, 2016, the number of OSM users mapping Batangas City may increase from this update.
