Open Data Day is an international gathering of people in places around the world to write applications, liberate data, create visualizations and publish analysis using open public data.

In the Philippines, we will be celebrating this event on February 23, 2013 in Quezon City.


In celebration of Open Data Day 2013, the OpenStreetMap Philippines community and the Environmental Science for Social Change will host a day of mapping, skill sharing and data hacking.

The goal is to connect people who are interested to use OSM, its related technology, and other open datasets for development.

  • Do you have a project that needs mapping data?
  • Do you have an interesting data you want OSM to use.
  • Does you organization provide open data that you want others to use in various and unexpected ways?

This is an open event, if you have projects or interests related to OSM and open data, you will find people to discuss the details with you.
