Featured project

WMPH Cultural heritage mapping project logo 1.png

The Philippine Cultural Heritage Mapping project is a GLAM-Wiki activity of Wikimedia Philippines that will photo-document cultural heritage sites around the Philippines and create articles about them on Wikipedia. This project is the chapter's response to the lack of freely-available documentation of heritage sites in the Visayas that were severely damaged from the series of calamities during the last quarter of 2013.

The project builds on the list of officially declared Philippine cultural heritage properties that was used in Wiki Loves Monuments Philippines in 2012 and 2013, and the Philippine Cultural Heritage law. The documentation output will be made available on Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons and the official project page

The project was officially endorsed by the Board for funding on January 18, 2014 after two months of planning with the proponent and project lead Joel Aldor together with his team of heritage experts including Architect Manuel Maximo Lopez–Castillo Noche, Christian Aguilar and Fung Yu. On March 5, 2014, the Wikimedia Foundation approved the funding of the project. (Read more...)
