It's a good idea! We could be the first to do a "simultaneous mapping
party". We are planning to map Samal Island as to when, we just don't
know yet. 

Bdw, I will have a talk on Sept. 19 about OSM for the Software Freedom
Day at the University of the Immaculate Conception in Davao City. I will
try to open to them the possibility of having a "simultaneous mapping
party" in Manila and Davao.
