NatGES x GESC 2024: Unveiling limitless breakthroughs in Geomatics

The curtains have closed on yet another amazing event of showcasing the limitless applications of Geomatics in society. 

National Geodetic Engineering Summit

Held at the University of the Philippines Diliman on April 28-29, 2024, the National Geodetic Engineering Summit x Geodetic Engineering Student Conference (NatGES x GESC) 2024, with a theme of “GeoArcana: Unearthing the Limitless Breakthroughs in Geomatics”, has successfully gathered more than 500 Geodetic Engineering students, faculty members, and professionals across the country to discuss the various facets of the Geodetic Engineering field.

The GESC, in its 16th year, comprised talks by Geodetic Engineering professionals on current breakthroughs and trends in the field of Remote Sensing, Photogrammetry, Geographic Information Systems (GIS), and Surveying. It also encompassed demonstrations of the latest advancements, a quiz bee, a mapping competition among participating schools, and a social night event that facilitated students in building connections with their peers. 

The NatGES, inaugurated just last year, has also triumphantly discussed the foresights and opportunities within the discipline. The event explored the potential advancements of the field through talks and a research colloquium, the challenges it may face over time, and the areas for growth and innovation focusing on how it can be used as a tool to improve every individual’s life within the country and around the globe. Additionally, the event equipped the students with updated knowledge regarding the career prospects in Geodetic Engineering field, and fostered their connection with professionals as it opened discussions from both parties.
