A meeting followed at the Geospatial System and Development Conference Room of NAMRIA. Ms. Beata Batadlan and Ms. Maricel De Luna represented RDAB and MGB respectively. Director Smith presented a wide coverage of geospatial data like surveillance information on socio-economic activity that can be integrated into a geospatial database. Also, he presented a strategic map on mineral exploits and marine traffic in the West Philippine Sea. Director Fabic encouraged the IHS Executive to have GI products be made available to the Philippine Geoportal (PG) to benefit our PG stakeholders particularly agencies, bureaus or offices dealing with intelligence activities and national security issues.
