The Philippine Active Geodetic Network (PageNET)
is a network of permanently-installed, continuously operating geodetic reference
stations that utilize signals from Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) to
provide real-time corrections, high-precision geographic position data to users via the Internet.
Data from the network may be used in a wide array of applications such as surveying,
mapping, navigation, crustal deformation studies, and meteorology.
The PageNET is an important component of NAMRIA’s strategic plan to modernize the
Philippine Geodetic Reference System (PGRS) by year 2020. It provides a continuous link to the International
Terrestrial Reference Frame (ITRF) and is one of the Agency’s contributions to the
development of a sustainable global geodetic reference frame as called for by the
United Nations General Assembly through Resolution No. 69/266 of 26 February 2015
(A Global Geodetic Reference Frame for Sustainable Development).
The establishment of PageNET started i n 2008 with plans to put up 200 stations by year 2025 nationwide.
Three of its stations (PTAG, PPPC, PGEN) are already incorporated
in the International GNSS Service (IGS) Tracking Network.
