In celebration of the Geography Awareness Week, Grab, Map the Philippines and OpenStreetMap Philippines co-organized a mapping party to teach people how to map, and meet other mappers. It was held at Grab PH’s headquarters in Makati and was attended by volunteers, students, government employees, NGO workers, and Grab personnel.
Celina Agaton talked about the objectives of the mapping party and also introduced her organization, Map the Philippines.
It was followed by an introduction to OSM and Tasking Manager by David Garcia.
We used the hashtag #osmgeoweekPH to track the edits by the participants. Here are the statistics:
We also gave three major awards for the users who have contributed the most during the mapathon.
Huge thanks to Grab, MapPH, and OSMPH for organizing this activity!
