Mapping work is being done in the neighbouring Geel, Olen and Herentals. Mapping in Westerlo is still very limited. Some main roads have been mapped, but entire towns are lacking.

I've started some initial mapping in 2008-08-21 by going through Oevel and Tongerlo, and by connecting the towns with Westerlo (--Bartth 12:06, 28 August 2008 (UTC)) Feel free to contact me for a mapping party or some kind of working together!

Currently doing detailed mapping of Trienenkant (a residential area between Tongerlo and Oevel - on the top of the map above) --Bartth 08:18, 22 January 2009 (UTC)
