[talk-ph] Parish boundaries in OSM

Hi guys,

Last year, I did an experiment in marking parish and vicariate boundaries
in OSM. And I tried it on the Vicariate of San Jose de Trozo in Manila.

I've marked them in the same way as administrative boundaries but using
boundary=religious (and religion=christian + denomination=roman_catholic).
For parish boundaries, I also added the parish church itself into the
relation with the role "seat".

You can see the results here: http://overpass-turbo.eu/s/fH

That map is interactive: you can click on elements to see what they are.

Note that this is an experiment and there is no approved tagging guidelines
or scheme for marking parish (and hopefully diocese/archidiocese)

I'd like to know what you guys think? :-)
