CENRO Bislig holds Basic GIS to CSU OJT

BISLIG CITY, Surigao del Sur -- The Department of Environment and Natural Resources- City Environment and Natural Resources Office (DENR-CENRO) - Bislig City headed by Nathaniel Racho initiated a 3-day Basic Geographic Information System (GIS) Training on August 15 to 17, 2022 at the DENR-CENRO Bislig Conference Hall in Bislig City.

FR/ ICT Focal Kent Cloyd Bandoy facilitated the activity  participated  by the 16 Forestry Students who are On the Job Training (OJT)  from Caraga State University ( CSU ). 

Accordingly, GIS is a system that creates, manages, analyzes, and maps all types of data. GIS connects data to a map, integrating location data with all  types of descriptive information. It is a type of database containing the geographic data, combined with software tools for managing, analyzing, and visualizing those data.

GIS software produces maps and other graphic displays of geographic information for analysis and presentation. With these capabilities, a GIS is a valuable tool that visualizes spatial data or builds decision support systems for the organization or the user.

A working GIS integrates five key components: hardware, software, data, people, and methods. Hardware is the computer on which a GIS operates. Today, GIS software runs on a wide range of hardware types, from centralized computer servers to desktop computers used in stand-alone or networked configurations.

 A geotagging activity using the Geotag Camera at CENRO Bislig Arboretum, Rest and Recreation Area, and Barangay San Roque, Bislig City were also conducted and performed by the OJT students during the event. (NGPB/DENR-CENRO Bislig/PIA-Surigao del Sur)
