Developments on southwestern barangays of San Pedro, Laguna

Posted by TagaSanPedroAko on 4 July 2017 in English (English)

It was since January 2016 when I requested to map the less mapped barangays in southwest San Pedro, Laguna, which includes Magsaysay, United Bayanihan, Riverside, Laram, and Langgam. But, now, this effort now came to fruition.

From July 2017, after doing ground mapping after visiting Langgam, the less mapped areas of San Pedro, Laguna, finally has grown. Several POIs have been added, plus street names. The main priority is the important POIs, like schools, barangay halls, and churches. I have uploaded a GPX track as a guide when someone wants to realign the roads there, that are traced from aerial imagery, that may be offset.

Here are some POIs added on the survey:

  • Divine Gift School
  • Vian Rechel Academy
  • IETI
  • The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
  • 7-Eleven (Magsaysay branch)
  • San Pedro Relocation Area Cooperative
  • United Bayanihan Community Church
  • Alfamart (United Bayanihan branch)
  • Ministop (United Bayanihan branch)
  • Polytechnic University of the Philippines - San Pedro Campus
  • Laguna Relocation Community School
  • Upper Villages Christian Academy
  • Laram Barangay Hall
  • Most Holy Name of Jesus Parish
  • United Montessorean School of San Pedro (Langgam campus)
  • Jesus the Faithful Savior Christian School

Yet, several POIs and street names found on the survey are still not mapped, but can be mapped on following changesets. An update on the OSM Wiki page for San Pedro, Laguna provides all mapping updates (with dates for tracking latest updates). And for other POIs not found on the survey, I leave it to the other users (especially locals) to map, or note for others to resolve. The POIs added may start increased efforts to map the least mapped barangays of San Pedro.
