Launching the Philippine LGU Data project
10-31, 07:00–07:55 (UTC), Room 1

This is a meetup between the Wikidata editors and OSM mappers in the Philippines who are interested in an interlinked open dataset of local government units (LGUs) of the Philippines using Wikidata and OpenStreetMap as the data platforms. The meeting will discuss goals, current status and activities, ideas, and issues that needs to be tackled in order for Wikidata and OSM to have the best open-licensed data on Philippine regions, provinces, cities, municipalities, and barangays.
