Batangas City is a city in Batangas, Philippines at latitude 13°45′21.24″ North, longitude 121°03′34.92″ East.

OpenStreetMap images (and underlying map data) are freely available under OpenStreetMap License.

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).

Status

Mapping status of Batangas City is divided by barangay, except for the barangays in Poblacion, which is collectively referred to as Poblacion. Rural areas are of mostly low priority, but mapping is mostly concentrated in woodland and residential areas

The city map, particularly those in the Poblacion, has became more detailed given various mapping projects that added buildings and critical points of interests. Now, the city map looks very great, but fixes for navigation, missing street names, and additional POI's are one of a few tasks that should be done to keep map up to date. Fixing of erroneous mapping is an ongoing task, particularly those under the previous LGU-led mapping efforts.

Mapping milestones

  • 2009 - Initial data for the city added.
  • 2015-2016 - The map for the Poblacion area was completely overhauled through the efforts User:TagaSanPedroAko, through adding missing one-ways, POIs, land use, and jeepney routes. Many changes also occured on the outside barangays, such as POI additions.
  • 2016 -
    • City boundary is added, as well as some barangay and sitio boundaries
    • A disaster management-related mapping project under the Project NOAH mapping initiative started, eventually completed building mapping for most of the city, with exceptions.
  • 2017
    • A city government-led mapping project completed most critical POI (i.e. schools, barangay halls, chapels) for each barangay, as well as several agricultural lands in the northern part of the city.
    • A mapping workshop led by MapPH, various Batangas LGUs, the Bayanihan Mapping Workshop, is held at Batangas State University. Through ground mapping efforts, the map of the Batangas State University and its vicinity is now detailed.
    • Through extrapolation of LGU-added map data for critical POI's, most barangays have been already mapped, as well as some sitios/puroks.
  • 2018 - 3D tagging started to be introduced, particularly the Poblacion area and major locations (especially the major schools, colleges, and universities) . Several buildings in Poblacion, (especially commercial buildings along P. Burgos), the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception, Batangas City Hall, St. Bridget College, and SM City Batangas (and nearby buildings along Joseling Road, now has detailed 3D rendering, which is ongoing.

Priority tasks

  • Places and buildings (includes houses, commercial buildings, etc.)
  • Street names and roads
  • Transport network
  • Administrative boundaries (city, barangay, sitio)
  • Electric power infrastructure (Meralco, NGCP, BATELEC-II) , especially sub-transmission and distribution lines, poles, and distribution transformers.
  • Woodland areas and residential areas
  • 3D mapping (see details)

Barangays, and sitios/puroks and subdivisions

The first barangays of Batangas City are mostly mapped from local knowledge and surveys, but others are based on data added by Batangas City LGU employees on one mapping project from March and April 2017. Barangays on the Poblacion area are under "Poblacion", instead of being listed individually. Sitios/puroks mapped may or may not be officially designated by the barangays (those officially designated may have a sign placed by the barangays, but named areas used by locals in speech may need to be verified, especially those lacking signed evidence of official recognition by the barangay). Subdivisions/residential areas, though preferably mapped as land use rather than a node (some designated by barangays as sitios), are considered divisions of the barangays, and are also included.

3D

Though still not having the high-rises and skyscrapers Metro Manila has now, 3D mapping is being introduced to the city, for 3D renderings of the city

Current work in 3D mapping is particularly in Poblacion. One main job is tagging the number of storeys or heights of buildings, basing on local knowledge, surveys, and photos. 3D tags, under the Simple 3D buildings scheme, are added after, basing also on aerial imagery (particularly those that are too high) and local knowledge, survey and photos (for building colors, also for roof details where they are easily visible).

Current detailed 3D mapping efforts are being done on this places:

  • Poblacion
    • Commercial buildings at P. Burgos
    • Basilica of the Immaculate Conception and associated area (partially complete)
    • City Hall complex (done for the main building and the Gusaling Pangkalikasan and Pangkaligtasan)
    • St. Bridget College and University of Batangas - Elementary Department (partially complete)
    • Commercial buildings along M.H. del Pilar (started)
    • Golden Gate Colleges (Integrated school only)
    • Saint Patrick's Hospital
    • Divine Child School
    • Batangas National High School (started)
  • Pallocan West
    • SM City Batangas
    • Commercial areas along Manuela Pastor Avenue
