|Other information about the mapper
Mapping enthusiast from San Pedro, Laguna, a city since December 28, 2013 in the Philippines. I mapped most of San Pedro current hometown, Muntinlupa, my former hometown, and Batangas City, my vacation place, but also mapped on areas I reached. Though involved in ground mapping, whenever I go outside, I also contribute in remote mapping. From 2018, I am started mapping part of Canada, like Alberta.
Most of my edits concern:
- points of interests (POI)'
- power lines
- public transport
I mapped most points of interests in San Pedro, as well as Muntinlupa and Batangas City, but also map some POI's I see on areas outside my local areas. My primary contributions are:
- other schools and colleges in San Pedro, Laguna
- local POI's in San Antonio, San Pedro, Laguna
- many POI's and some schools and colleges in Muntinlupa, especially in Tunasan, Poblacion, Putatan, and Alabang
- many POI's in Batangas City, especially in Poblacion, Cuta, Alangilan, Kumintang Ilaya, Kumintang Ibaba, Balagtas, and Pallocan West.
- POI's inside malls, like SM Center Muntinlupa (currently undergoing some renovation work), SM City Batangas, Festival Alabang (formerly Festival Supermall, currently undergoing expansion), and SM City Santa Rosa. I created indoor maps for those malls.
I also map power lines, ranging from lines on poles serving houses and businesses, the subtransmission network supplying local substations and some industrial customers from large substations, and transmission lines that carry energy from power plants to customers. My power line mapping is centered on the networks by the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP), which operates the Philippine national grid, with lines ranging from the 69 or 115 kV subtransmission lines on poles to the 115 kV,, 138 kV, 230 kV, 350 kV (DC),and 500 kV transmission lines on towers, and Meralco (Manila Electric Company), a Metro Manila-based utility which operates a network of subtransmission lines (with voltages of 115 kV on Metro Manila, southern Bulacan, Cavite, Laguna, Rizal, and Quezon, or 69 kV on Batangas City and northern Bulacan) and distribution lines (with voltages of 34.5 kV on Metro Manila, Bulacan, Cavite, Laguna, Rizal, and Quezon, and 13.8 kV on Batangas City and San Pascual) that supply power to the areas it serve through substations and transformers. Aside from the networks by NGCP and Meralco, I contributed part of the networks of some electric cooperatives, especially on the Batangas II Electric Cooperative, a Lipa-based electric cooperative that distributes electricity in eastern Batangas, except Batangas City, (excluding Verde Island), San Pascual, Santo Tomas, and the First Philippine Industrial Park in Tanauan, which are served by Meralco.
I also contribute on roads, especially road names, missing roads, and lane count. My areas where I mostly contributed on the road network include:
- San Pedro, Laguna
- San Antonio, San Pedro, Laguna
- Park Spring and The Glens
- Camella Woodhills
- Maria Aurora Heights
- Holiday Park
- Camella Colina
- San Antonio, San Pedro, Laguna
- National Highway (added split after painted divider is placed last 2016)
- Muntinlupa, (especially on some subdivisions)
- National Road (added lane count and pedestrian crossings)
- Villa Carolina I
- Lakeview Homes
- Batangas City
- Poblacion (corrected street names and directions)
- Cuta (added roads and street names, especially on the New Market/Julian Pastor Memorial Market and Duluhan areas
- Malitam (added all street names)
Aside from adding roads and street names, I also add lane count, whenever discernible, like on road markings or concrete cut marks, lane movement, when indicated by markings or signs, and road destinations, whenever I find a sign.
I also contributed on public transport, especially on jeepney routes, like the routes between Alabang in Muntinlupa and Calamba in Laguna, jeepney network in Batangas City, and portions of some bus routes in Metro Manila; however, I concentrate
Currently, I am contributing also on data improvements for Alberta in Canada, starting with Spruce Grove. Most of my work is on local updates, lane assist, and power lines (such as the 7.2/12.47 kV lines on wood poles), particularly around Spruce Grove.
