Open House of Geographic Information System Technology Center
On December 20, 2022, the Research and Innovation Office, in collaboration with the Geographic Information System Technology Center (GIS-TC), hosted the very first Open House for the GIS-Technology Center in the Research, Innovation, and Extension Services Building.
The objective of this event was to provide participants with sufficient knowledge of the fundamental GIS concept in order to solve real-world problems. Facilitators also fostered an equal understanding of and practice opportunities for GIS-related research writing skills and processes. Through the Open House, the GIS-TC and the Research and Innovation Office made available numerous GIS techniques and applications, regression analysis, and problem classification.
GIS is a system for creating, managing, analyzing, and mapping all data types. Integrates various descriptive information with location data and connects data to a map. It lays the foundation for mapping and analysis utilized in science and nearly every industry. GIS aids the comprehension of patterns, associations, and geographic context for its users. The benefits include improved communication and productivity, as well as enhanced management and decision-making.
Continuing GIS research, which increasingly focuses on the development of more general applications, necessitates extensive training to generate a highly optimized algorithm capable of performing specific and complex tasks.
During the program, Dr. Francis Ann R. Sy, the Officer-in-Charge of Southern Leyte State University, urged the youth mappers to continue to support the efforts of GIS-TC and produce research and innovations that could pave the way for the betterment of our future.
Mr. Gordon Opina, EM-DRRM Officer Designate, Dr. Arvin C. Balala, SLSU Bontoc Campus RIES Head, and Dr. Inocencia M. Caon were in attendance.
