08 June 2022 — Ilocos Region. The Philippine Statistics Authority — Regional Statistical Services Office I (PSA — RSSO l) conducts the 2nd Level Training for the Augmented System for Travel Information using GIS Technology (ASTIG Tech) at the PSA - RSSO I Conference Room, City of San Fernando, La Union.
The three-day training will focus on the ASTIG Tech operational procedures, general concepts, and detailed instructions on proper encoding and plotting of travel information using the ASTIG Tech Web Application and ArcGlS Pro. Participants will be doing a series of exercises to test the systems to be used for this undertaking.
The GIS-based system aims to have a database of turn-by-turn navigation information which will be integrated with travel information including fare matrix, road type, mode of travel, frequency of trips, among others that can be used as reference by the PSA in the conduct of field operations. The system will also serve as basis in determining the expected travelling expenses and manhours required for the PSA personnel especially during census and survey operations.
Field operations for the ASTIG Tech will commence on 13 June 2022 until 28 July 2022.
