Mapping of the Philippines started sometime in 2006 when (?) marked EDSA in Metro Manila via GPS traces. Since then, mapping effort continued to rapidly increase throughout the years. When Yahoo! permitted OSM to use their satellite imagery for tracing in December 2006, mapping of Metro Manila, one of the areas covered exploded and remains to be the most mapped area in the Philippines approaching around 90% of roads mapped.
Other areas with significant mapping activities include Davao City, which is another area covered by Yahoo!'s imagery, areas in greater Metro Manila, Angeles and Clark, Baguio, and Boracay. Government geospatial data has been imported and these include roads for Laguna and the whole of Naga City in Camarines Sur. Major roads of Mindanao have been mapped as well as other national highways around the Philippines.
