Before you download, please remove and create a backup of previous OSM-PH map.

Several improvements are:
1. Added more POI types.
2. More landuse polygons.
3. Including highway=road with default name=fixme.
4. Administrative level boundaries for municipalities and provinces.
5. Custom map style using the typ file. These includes custom icons,
thinner road width, and custom landuse colors.

The data (as of 20090809) was compiled using mkgmap ver. 1129.
These includes 40,000 ++ kilometers of roads from 260 ++ contributors.
