The National Mapping and Resource Information Authority (NAMRIA) successfully concluded its second round table discussion which aimed to present and advocate the proposed Agency Geospatial Data Infrastructure Plan (AGDI) to representatives from 28 government agencies.


According to an official statement, the AGDI plan will serve as a “cookbook” containing the basic guidelines and procedures on how to prepare, develop, and implement an Agency Node that that will be eventually and seamlessly linked to the Philippine Geoportal. By doing so, government agencies and other relevant stakeholders can easily access and share geospatial information and data in a user-friendly interface.


The proposed AGDI was created by the Policy, Planning, Change Management, Monitoring and Institutionalisation team from Geodata Systems Technologies Inc, and the Policy Framework Formulation and Planning Technical Working Group of NAMRIA.


The roundtable discussions was focused on: jumpstarting the preparation of the AGID Plan, exploring how GIS is currently being used in agencies and identifying any strategic concerns, defining the timeline for the preparation of AGDI per agency, and finalising details of the deployment of the agency’s geospatial data to the Philippine Geoportal System through the agency’s node portal module.
