About Pista ng Mapa

Celebrating open (geo)data and maps; fostering the growth of inclusive communities across the Philippines.

Last year, we brought the Pista online. This year, we're keeping the spirit burning for our 2nd Online Pista on November 13, 16, and 20, 2021!

Pista ng Mapa (Festival of Maps) is a free (as in cost and freedom) and open outreach activity to generate public interest, advocate the use of open (geo) data, promote free and open source software for geospatial (FOSS4G) applications, gather and grow enthusiasts, users in the public and private sector, and local communities in the Philippines, outside of the capital region Metro Manila.

It is organized by volunteer advocates from the local OpenStreetMap, OSGeo/FOSS4G, and other map-py communities.

Follow us on Facebook and Twitter to for updates and announcements.
