NAMRIA can provide the public with surveying and mapping services, training on Geographic Information System or GIS, technical assistance on GIS development and certifications to various data and technical equipment such as Global Positioning Systems or GPS.

The NAMRIA Information and Client Service Unit (ICSU) serves as the frontline service center that provides assistance to clients. It can assist clients in determining the type of product that can be used, where it is located and then to request a copy by fax or telephone. Technical staffs of ICSU are also trained to teach how to use the information obtained.
Topographic Base Mapping

Hydrographic Surveying. Surveys whose principal purpose is the determination of data relating to bodies of water. A hydrographic survey may consist of the determination of one or several of the following classes of data: depth water; configuration and nature of the bottom; directions and force of currents; heights and times of tides and water stages; and location of fixed objects for survey and navigation purposes.

Physical Oceanographic Surveying. Studies or examination of the physical characteristics of ocean water such as salinity, temperature, density, etc., and dynamics such as tides, currents and waves.

Geodetic Surveying. Surveys being conducted primarily to establish, densify and maintain the Philippine Geodetic Control (horizontal and vertical network).

Topographic Mapping. Determination of the horizontal and vertical positions of natural and man-made features of the earth's surface to be presented on a topographic map. Photogrammetric surveys include the use of aerial photographs.

Land Classification Surveying. These involve the classification of the country's unclassified public forests into alienable or disposable lands, as well as the evaluation of existing land classification projects and the verification of land classification status.

Philippine Geoportal System

NAMRIA is a technical agency whose personnel are highly trained not only in surveying and mapping but also in information management. This agency offers services to both private and government agencies in the development of geographic information systems.

Some of the GIS projects developed by NAMRIA are: Philippine Geoportal System, School Profiling for DepEd, Historical and heritage sites for NHI, Tourism sites and establishments for DOT-Reg 3, Forestry Statistics for FMB, among others.

Below are the expertise that our agency can provide.

System Development and Programming. The Geospatial Systems Development Division (GSDD) provides expertise in systems analysis, design and programming in the field of geographic information systems (GIS) technology, surveying, mapping, remote sensing, natural environment applications, and management information. Also, development of web-based applications is offered by this division.

Database Management. The Geospatial Database Management Division (GDMD) offers services in design, creation and maintenance of GIS and Statistical/ENR databases. Projects on data standardization and data exchange have strengthened the expertise of NAMRIA in this regard.

Satellite Image

The NAMRIA Geomatics Training Center or GTC is an accredited training center by the Civil Service Commission (CSC). It offers training courses related to Geographic Information System (GIS), Remote Sensing (RS), Global Positioning System (GPS), and other surveying, mapping and allied technologies employed by NAMRIA for executives, middle managers and technical staffs.

The GTC is located at the third floor of the NAMRIA main office building in Taguig City. It has well-equip training facilities and well-trained and experienced GIS resource persons. It can train up to 25 persons at the same time and can host seminars and training outside NAMRIA.

For further inquiries and confirmation of training schedule you may call the GTC at (63-2) 887-5466. The GTC can also accomodate off-site training.

Do you produce road maps?

NAMRIA produces topographic maps that are used as base maps for other thematic maps like land cover, land condition, land classification, cadastral, etc. In addition, we have digital data of road maps available. This data comes from the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH).
