Hi Noli,

The Metro Manila page on the wiki is definitely not updated. And we're
actually using Walking Papers during the Mapping Parties in Metro Manila
such as during the Marikina Mapping Party.

We definitely could use some outreach activities. I think there has been
little in the way of talking to village homeowner's association,
geographic/geodetic engineering students and student orgs, and local
government units. Hopefully once we get the actual post-incorporation tasks
of OpenStreetMap Philippines Inc. out of the way, we can use the org to
liaise with relevant orgs and institutions.

Eugene
