Map Your Place

OpenStreetMap is a free editable map of the whole world. It is made by people like you. It allows you to view, edit and use geographical data in a collaborative way from anywhere on Earth.

As a member of the OpenStreetMap organization, I am inviting and encouraging everyone to contribute to this project. This will benefit each of us when we travel from place to place or just roam around any part in our city.

Be part of our advocacy so that we can all work together to create a free open-source map for our entire country of origin.

Join now!

Mapping Party in Davao

The Davao online mappers will be launching a mapping party that would cover every nook and cranny of Davao City this coming July 4, 2009.

This is a whole-day activity and mappers are grouped into teams and each team will be given a Global Positioning System (GPS) to map their respective areas in the city. Each team would either be in vehicles, in bikes or would walk around the city.

Several groups and sectors have chipped in to sponsor the mapping event, particularly on the use of the GPS equipment. We are inviting Dabawenyos to join the mapping party, assuring that there are no registration fees to be collected.

So come and be counted!
