Why to map this area

  • The city's downtown ("Poblacion") is an important commercial center, and the city is also an important port, reflecting its commercial importance.
  • The city has an interesting transportation system, like the color-coded jeepney services around the city and its suburbs and surrounding areas. The jeepney routes are divided into 5 groups, Batangas-Poblacion (BP), Batangas-North (BN), Batangas-South (BS), Batangas-East (BE), and Batangas-West (BW).
