BRP Presbitero or Ventura Mapping Station

The BRP Hydrographer Presbitero, chartered for our expedition, is shown here at dock in the Port of Manila. (BRP is the acronym for Barko ng Republika ng Pilipinas, which identifies it as a ship of the Republic of the Philippines.) The ship is used for various types of marine research, but she is specifically charged with producing data that can be used to create navigational charts and topographic maps. Image courtesy of 2007: Exploring the Inner Space of the Celebes Sea.

The BRP HYDROGRAPHER PRESBITERO and BRP HYDROGRAPHER VENTURA were named after Commodore Jayme V. Presbitero and Commodore Antonio P. Ventura, distinguished former Bureau of Coast and Geodetic Survey directors. They were built by the Factorias Vulcano shipyard in Vigo, Spain from 14 May 1997 to 04 August 1998. BRP HYDROGRAPHER PRESBITERO arrived in Manila on 16 October 1998, after brief stop in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia and Singapore and test surveys in the Sulu Sea and Surigao Strait. BRP HYDROGRAPHER VENTURA arrived in Manila on 07 January 1999 after a brief stop also from Jeddah, Saudi Arabia and Singapore and test surveys in the Sulu Sea and Surigao Strait.

NAMRIA envisions a highly-professionalized, technically advanced, globally competitive, and environment and natural resources caring agency. Its mission is to generate and disseminate reliable and up-to-date geographic information and provide related services, by employing state-of-the-art technology, in support to national development and security. As provided for in the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR)Administrative Order No. 31, series of 1988, which prescribed the guidelines implementing Section 22 (a) of Executive Order 192, NAMRIA is mandated to provide the public with mapmaking services and to act as the central mapping agency, depository, and distribution facility for natural resources data in the form of maps, charts, texts, and statistics. NAMRIA's core functions are:

Topographic Base Mapping
NAMRIA produces updated topographic base maps and thematic maps at various scales in support of the governments development planning, environmental management, and multi-hazard mapping, among other programs. Digital and cartographically enhanced largescale topographic maps (1:10,000 scale) provide more detailed information on administrative boundaries, drainage systems, existing infrastructure, major establishments, road networks, topography, vegetation, and other economic indicators showing the present development in the area at barangay level. Similarly, medium and small-scale maps (1:50,000 and 1:250,000 scale) are support tools for applications at municipal and provincial levels. Administrative maps indicate political boundaries of provinces and regions of the country. Development of the National Geodetic Network

Executive Order (EO) No. 45, s. 1993 (as amended by EO 280, s. 2000 and EO 321, s. 2004) mandates the use of the Philippine Reference System of 1992 (PRS92) as the standard reference system for all surveying and mapping activities in the country by CY 2010. NAMRIA is spearheading the implementation of PRS92 Project in coordination with the DENR regional offices, particularly the Lands Management Bureau, the Forest...
