An initial list of areas that may need remapping in order to be ODBL compliant.

General area Description Who is working on it Remarks
Angeles, Pampanga Streets originally created by Vince Villena ianlopez1115 Area near Clark Freeport complete. Other areas to follow.
Zambales area street in the towns of San Felipe, San Marcelino, Castillejos, San Antonio. Mostly traced in imagery, very little street were named. This can be remapped remotely. Maning Complete. San Antonio, Pundaquit, San Narciso, San Felipe Subic, Olongapo and SBMA remapped. Many roads in Castillejos cannot be recovered due to lack of GPS traces and imagery.
Bacolod Streets and buildings in the city center. Streets can be re-traced in imagery but street names need to be verified by local mappers. We can retrace streets from Bing imagery and then we could ask Gladys (and her brother) to help in adding street names.
Tarlac City 25% of objects were touched by RoadMaps who have not yet agreed to the new license. Imagery is available. Maning Complete. Most roads remapped, minor features such a riverbank polys will be added later.
