GPS Mapping Party In Davao City

June 19, 2009 2 Comments »

It’s time to put Davao City on the global online map.

A group of online mappers are currently in talks to update Davao City’s web-based map in OpenStreetMap. The ultimate plan is to launch a mapping party on July, pooling together a number of interested individuals to participate in a simultaneous GPS mapping activity.
