Secondary Cities – Olongapo City, Ports R’ Us!



From the big three metropolitan urban areas, let us not forget the cities that act as counter magnets that support primary urban centers. Now let’s take a look at secondary cities. This is the first map out of 15 I will be sharing about secondary cities identified by the USAID SURGE project. 😉 Here we have Olongapo City: port city, the potential of the city to consolidate port operations of adjacent special economic zones. What do you think? 😉

Haven’t you noticed that our settlement patterns follow waterways? What do you think should we do about taking care of our riverine systems and utilizing them in city planning?

*this map was prepared using open data from OsmContributors, QGIS, SRTM, & OpenTopography.
