Free Open Street Map data (i.e.shapefiles etc.) for the Philippines

Free Road data extracted from Open Street Map made available by Cloudmade.

Datasets for different countries are also available.

GEOFABRIK also made OSM data freely-available for us. It is not partitioned by provinces like that of Cloudmade though. 

The datasets are very useful. GREAT!

I go really excited whenever I get to discover free datasets being catered to everyone. When we get to share our contents, that's when better things come our way - our data being improved, information disseminates and public awareness increases. 

I hope our local government is making some effort to utilize this free and useful information for planning and multi-criteria decision making. I hope. (^_^)
