This exhibit was already mentioned by Rally last week:

Anyway, I visited the exhibit last Saturday to attend the first
lecture and bumped into Rally too. We both saw the first lecture given
by French expat Christian Perez who has visited all 80 provinces of
the Philippines. His lecture was titled "The Mapping of Philippine
Provinces" but actually, a better title would have been "The Evolution
of Philippine Provinces as Seen Through Maps". One thing I've learned
from the lecture is that the Agusan-Davao border seems to have been
designated by the Americans to sit on the 8th latitude.

I will also be going to the second lecture later this morning. Maybe
I'll bump into some of you guys there? :)

Apart from the lectures, the exhibit itself is very interesting. If
you're at all interested in Philippine maps and/or Philippine history,
the exhibit would be a pleasure to see. I was actually amazed that an
1875 Encyclopedia Britannica map depicted the Philippines almost
perfectly, which is weird since some Spanish maps from the same period
had major inaccuracies.

And if you're interested in the Scarborough Shoal issue with China,
you can see how some maps from the 18th Century and onwards have shown
this area. One nice tidbit is that some of the earlier maps actually
depicted two separate island groups, one for "Scarborough" and another
for "Isla de Panacot"/"Baja de Masinloc". Later maps have merged these
two together as well as removed the phantom islands north and south of
them (the northern named "Bajo de Bolinao").

Dear all,

I introduced OSM editing to several LGU personnel in Mindanao.  They
started editing the map today.  As they are newbies, please have a
look and edit common mistakes.
Changesets here:

Advance thanks!
