In what ways can geotechnologies aid in the building and construction of efficient and safer infrastructures?
For this month’s edition of the PGS Lecture Series, the Philippine Geographical Society is thrilled to welcome geography alumna Patricia Algura who will give a talk on 17 November (Wednesday) at 5:30PM.
The presentation entitled Geospatial Innovations for Efficient Infrastructures will be covering geospatial innovations in the engineering and construction industry, showing how these industries use Geospatial applications to transform and challenge their usual ways of working. Using ArcGIS and FME tools, organizations were able to analyze and understand the what, where, and why of infrastructures, collaborate across all stakeholders, and make better decisions critical to building efficient and safer infrastructures. See how 3D, spatial analysis, story maps, GIS dashboards, field applications, and automation are transforming engineering and construction industries.
Pat Algura is the Geospatial Consultant at Jacobs under Digital Solutions. A BS Geography graduate of UP Diliman, Pat is a creative and a solutions person who has always been passionate about maps and the vast applications of GIS. She has been involved in various projects in utilities, engineering, local government and national agencies across the Philippines, Australia, New Zealand, and Singapore, enabling organizations digitally transform and innovate with Geospatial Solutions.
The PGS Lecture Series is a monthly knowledge-sharing talk and conversation among geography practitioners, alumni, and geography-adjacent allies with grounded work, research and practice focused on the Philippines. This 14th lecture series for 2021 is co-sponsored by the UP Department of Geography.
