Hi All, I am trying to understand the place:ph tagging scheme. I can see
that it holds names specific to the philippines (a lot of them)

Is it used with other tags to determine the type of place, if so, what =are
the different combinations?

I can see

   - place <http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:place>=village
   - place:ph<http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/w/index.php?title=Key:place:ph&action=edit&redlink=1>
   - name <http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:name>=name of barangay

Is that all that is used? are there that many (10,633,534) barangays? I
suspect not so I am obviously missing something

Where do the City Names Hide
