Tacurong City Online joined Google’s Map Your Precinct project in Gen San

Yes, and we mapped all but one of the 32 voting precincts of Tacurong City.  This is made possible thanks to the hardworking Google Mappers Christian Carillo, Dennis Teo and Tacurong Google Mappers group who laid down the google map of Tacurong City using google map maker and GPS overlays. Tacurong City Online, in partnership with LGU Tacurong City, previously conducted a Google Mapping Party in Tacurong to map and put this city in Google map!

Using the “Find Your Precinct”  app developed by a Google engineer who hails from GenSan, map makers from all over SocCSarSKGen convened at Hotel San Marco last April 18, 2013 to map precincts in various areas of SocCSarSKGen.

Graced and facilitated by Google’s Outreach Manager for South East Asia Aileen Apolo-de Jesus, the mappers got busy mapping their own respective towns and cities using the app. Google mappers and Google’s find your precinct app made it easier for voters to find their precinct come election time.

According to COMELEC website, Tacurong City has 46, 379 registered voters with 32 clustered voting precincts from previous 349 established precincts, distributed to the different schools in the 20 baranggays of the city. By providing directions and maps to the precinct, it will be easier now for voters to locate  their respective precincts come election time.

Mapping Tacurong City’s voting precincts has been undoubtedly easier because of the ground GPS coördinates laid out by Tacurong Google Mappers. Save for one precinct (Upper Katungal Elementary School) who isn’t yet in google map because it doesn’t have GPS coördinates yet, all precincts in Tacurong City has been mapped already!
