Recently, the Google Map Maker service has included the Philippines in its list of countries where editing of features is allowed.  As mentioned in the cited Wikipedia entry: "The ultimate goal of the project is to acquire sufficient high-quality mapping data to be published and used on the existing Google Maps service. Contributions do not currently appear on Google Maps."

In order to maintain consistency, facilitate adding of features, minimize revisions in the future, and prevent frustration among Pinoy map makers, I recommend the following guidelines for mapping the Philippines:
  1. Mapping Cities and Political Regions
  2. Naming of Features
