Let’s describe the Philippines in satellite photos!

This is fun! See The Philippines on Wikimapia.org.
Quick, zoom-in and start identifying places in the Philippines!

On WikiMapia, there are “places” – boxes labelled to identify landmarks. In wiki tradition, anybody can add, edit and delete places.My first impulse was to find my home and label “bahay ko!”. Wikimapia exhorts: Label places that are of interest to everybody, not “my house”.

Ah, but I couldn’t resist!

I trust the Wikimapia community will eventually clean things up.

This is a great overlay on Google Maps. It makes the maps easier to use. Last time I used Google maps, I couldn’t figure out where Mandaluyong was (sa luob, that’s where I live).
Next nifty overlay: Philippine street maps like the street maps of the US in Google Maps.

Now, what other uses can we make of Wikimapia and Google Maps?
