Google Mapping-up of "The City of Golden Harvest" is now ready

Last August 25, 2012, the Bukidnon Photographers and Bloggers Society, had concluded the map-up event for Malaybalay City. Right after that event, Kristopher Julius Ramos Alcordo, also a member of the said group, asked the author for a 2nd map-up. And that is to map-up the City of Golden Harvest, the City of Valencia, here in the Province of Bukidnon.

For those who are unfamiliar on what is Google Map Up, it is a web mapping service application and technology provided by Google.Make edits with the Google Maps through its Map Maker site.

Because Valencia City needs to have a clear resolution, this is also one of the reasons why Mr. Alcordo, personally initiated to convene about 30 participants on October 20, 2012. The other reasons are to give clear directions for both local and foreign tourists for the places where they wanted to go, give directions in case of disaster in going to affected areas, for emergency purposes,

Mapping-up is also a helpful tool to give directions to places where basic services is served, like the local hospitals, may it private or government hospitals and of course to give direction to our very own tourist spots.

Through the  use of Map Maker, advocates can help providing information of the places they knew and have it visible to the Google Map. And these edits shall be approved by google map reviewer.

The event is in coordination with the Public Information Office of Valencia City, Bukidnon Photographers and Bloggers Society led by the author, Digital Bukidnon, TeamAsia and Google Philippines Mapmaker Advocates.

The event will start at exactly 9 a.m. then workshop will be in the afternoon. This event will be held at the PIO Hall of Valencia City Hall.
