Hi,

I'm making some contributions to NW Pangasinan (I'm from Australia, my wife
is from Alaminos) and would like to discuss some "rules" and seek some
advice...

I think I may have already broken one rule re road tagging, but not using
the tag "service road" since that has a different use here.  But having
found the Philippines conventions page I promise to fix those indiscretions
in time...

One question is around legitimate information sources - I understand Google
Maps can't be used - but can street view be used (great for seeing the name
of auditoriums etc.)?

Can Mapcentral be used for Barangay names and borders or is there a better
source?  I see the Mapcentral borders differ considerably to the Google
Maps borders.

I've sent one email to Alaminos City town hall re street names - no
response to date but will give them a call of I don't hear from them over
the next week.  Any other sources of street names?  Post office?  I'll be
there next March and can always ask people on the street, though some of
the streets in new sub-divisions don't appear to have houses yet....

Regards

Glen
