Beyond the Poblacion

A proposal to divide San Pablo into other mapping zones was considered but largely unimplemented. The list below contained initial would-be cake slices.

  • West (western San Rafael, San Nicolas)
  • North Central (San Juan, Santa Maria Magdalena)
  • Northwest (San Crispin, Santa Filomena)
  • Southeast (Santo Niño, Santa Elena, San Cristobal)
  • San Diego, Santa Isabel
  • Santo Angel, San Lorenzo

Areas with Surveillance Cameras

Since many establishments in San Pablo City have surveillance systems installed within their premises from small convenience stores to banks to large supermarkets and malls, it is now recommended to add surveillance-related tags (Proposed_features/Surveillance, Proposed_features/Key:Surveillance).


Maintain data, update POIs whenever possible

Barangay Boundaries

Barangay boundaries were added in piecemeal fashion, starting in 2010/1.

Comparison with other maps

Google Mapmaker and successor instances under Google Maps may have closed the data gaps to match or surpass OpenStreetMap's coverage but remains inaccurate in some instances. EZ Maps has a somewhat accurate coverage of the city, but it is hampered with missing information and POI problems. A local map used to have more coverage than OpenStreetMap in terms of street data but deemed obsolete since it last updated in 2001 to add the then-developing Riverina Subdivision.


  • Certain roads were added in 2008 (Bureau of Soils and Water Management [BSWM] data import), other roads were added through GPS traces and available aerial imagery sources.
  • Bing initially covered most parts of the city in their mid-January 2011 update[2], which used satellite images gathered by DigitalGlobe in the early part of 2010. An update in February 2012 covered southern portions of the city, which used satellite images gathered by DigitalGlobe/GeoEye also in the early part of 2010, which made the city fully-covered with high-resolution imagery.
  • Imagery from Mapbox has been available since 2013[3]
