Wikipedia 15 meetup group shot
  • Wikipedia 15 and the Encyclopedia of Philippine Heritage launch
    On January 16, several members of the concluded Cultural Heritage Mapping Project met at a cafe in Greenhills, San Juan, Metro Manila to have a small Wikipedia 15 celebration. The meetup also served as a soft launch of the chapter's Encyclopedia of Philippine Heritage program, which aims to document and provide access to knowledge and information on the country's cultural and natural heritage. WMPH Chairman Eugene Villar led the meeting and also provided a quick demonstration of contributing to Wikidata.

    One of the activities in the Encyclopedia of Philippine Heritage program is to represent in Wikidata all of the historical markers related to the Philippines. To help keep track of this activity the chapter created a map web app showing the historical markers with coordinates that have already been entered into Wikidata.
