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”. The following year, PhilGEOS 2013 was held focused on the role of Geomatics in Agriculture and Forestry with the theme “Geomatics for a Resilient Agriculture and Forestry”.
PhilGEOS 2014 was organized revolving around the theme “Enhancing Public Service with Geomatics”, aimed to establish a powerful academe-government-industry connection, facilitate idea exchange and encourage research and development on Geomatics for public service. In 2015, two Special Symposiums were organized under the PhilGEOS 2015: the PhilGEOS – Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) and PhilGEOS – Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) Mapping.
