The Philippine Geomatics Symposium or PhilGEOS was envisioned to be the yearly national symposium for Geomatics educators, researchers, practitioners and all users of geospatial technology. PhilGEOS was first staged in November 2012 (PhilGEOS 2012) with the theme “Philippine Geomatics: pratice, application and accomplishments”. Last year, PhilGEOS 2013 focused on the role of Geomatics in Agriculture and Forestry with the theme “Geomatics for a Resilient Agriculture and Forestry”.
On its 3rd year, PhilGEOS 2014 will gather once again the members of the Philippine Geomatics community to meet and discuss, to gather and exchange knowledge and gain insights into the importance of Geomatics in public service. To be held on November 27-28, 2014, this year’s symposium is being organized as one of the major activities to commemorate and celebrate the 50 years of the UP TCAGP in public service.
