The two-day Geodetic Engineering Congress (GEC) and Geographic Information System Convention (GISC) 2023 culminated as a momentous convergence of academic and professional intellect by uniting distinguished speakers and delegates from the Visayas region at the Visayas State University (VSU) last November 28 to 29.


Viscans showed off their prowess during the event as Precillano Ray Ablen clinched both Best Research and Best Presenter awards in the Research Colloquium while the "MAPAbilib: Map Making Contest" witnessed Paul Ephraim S. Esdrelon and Cyrell Mae L. Duquita securing the first place.


Further, delegates of the GEC x GISC delved into the intricacies of Taxation, Geospatial Studies, and Advanced Technologies on its first day. 


A notable highlight of the first day was the engaging quiz show, where teams from participating universities showcased their expertise in Basic Surveying, Mathematics, Geodesy, Laws, Cartography, GIS, and Remote Sensing. The competition that saw spirited participation, witnessed Eastern Visayas State University's SAGE team clinching the top spot, followed by the GREEN SURVEYORS of EVSU and the GES Panthers of the University of Southern Philippines Foundation (USPF). 


Additionally, participants also had the opportunity to embark on a campus tour, gaining insights into VSU's facilities and vibrant academic environment. The day concluded on a convivial note with the Fellowship Night.


The second day started with the energetic ‘MapAmazing Race’ where students were tested through their teamwork and navigating skills.


The intellectual momentum continued with an in-depth topic discussion led by esteemed experts. Furthermore, a congregation of professionals from various educational institutions across the Visayas region participated in the Research Colloquium, providing a platform for scholars to share their research in the field of Geodetic Engineering. 


Adding to the visual feast was the MapaBilib, featuring a display of thematic events. The proceedings concluded with a plenary session where participants discussed the future trajectory of GEC x GISC.
