Let's improve the location of
place=town nodes in OpenStreetMap
Location of settlements such as cities, towns and villages are very important features that should be in any map like
OpenStreetMap (OSM). Most towns and cities tagged as
place=town or city
in the Philippines are already added in the OSM. Unfortunately, some of them are not located in the town's center or plaza.
You can help improve the location of Philippine towns in OSM.
Mapping in OpenStreetMap is as easy as these 3 steps.
The map above shows a 2 km^2 grid where a town node is located. Within this grid, we computed the length of roads. The grids shown are towns where there are no roads. That doesn't look right. Town nodes are normally placed within the town center where there is "a range of shops and facilities used by people from nearby villages" and of course, roads. If you think the town node is misplaced, help us improve the location in OSM.
