Mapathon!

The usefulness of maps has been proven and established since the beginning of human history. The need for readily-accessible maps has been highlighted by the natural disasters that the Philippines experience during the last quarter of 2013 (Bohol Earthquake & Typhoon Haiyan). This is an initiative to involve more people in the disaster-risk management efforts and promote the geomatics field by doing relevant mapping.

You can contribute and help finish the map for the whole country here.

You may also download latest Philippine edits (shapefile) here.

Mapping saves lives!
