- For: Philippine Red Cross
- Priority: Medium
The Philippines, due to its geographic location, is regularly subject to various natural disasters. The Northern Cebu Risk Mapping using OpenStreetMap(OSM) is a participatory mapping project of the Philippine Red Cross to improve the base geospatial data coverage of North Cebu for use in disaster response, climate adaptation, risk mitigation, and support other humanitarian initiatives.
Bogo is a sixth class component city in the province of Cebu, Philippines, with a population of 69,911. Located in the northeastern coast of Cebu province, on the principal island of Cebu. It is 101 kilometres from Cebu city.
The Philippine Red Cross continue their humanitarian missions, with partners including the Croix Rouge Francaise, the local government of Bogo, community stakeholders in North Cebu, in collaboration with advocates from the OpenStreetMap Philippines community.
Some of the grids are marked as difficult, and are best handled by more experienced mappers.
