  13. 13. GST Applications to MARITIME – In MARITIME CONFERENCES Sharing of GIS-papers during maritime conferences e.g. Geo Maritime & TRANSNAV GIS-based papers demonstrate the benefits of integrated use of satellite & GIS technologies on ships to various options of using other electronic navigation systems TRANSNAV 2013 Page 13
  14. 14. Challenges to Phil MET Schools • 2010 STCW amendments - use of technology like ECDIS pressures Philippine METIs to update their educational content • Fulfill (or exceed) global maritime demand for quality manpower • Maintain or (better) increase global Filipino manpower share • Enhance content and delivery of MET course curricula (e.g. Not just comply but exceed STCW and other standards) • Hire faculty with advanced degrees in maritime (!) • Hire faculty with substantial deck and engine experience in modern fully-equipped ocean-going vessels • Continually train faculty in emerging maritime technologies (e.g. GIS, AIS, GNSS, ECDIS, Digital Chart & Mapping, etc.) • Push faculty to engage in maritime research in STEMD (science, technology, engineering, math, and design) • Increase participation of Philippine MET faculty and researchers in maritime conferences, here and abroad Page 14
  15. 15. Introducing GIS in Phil MET • GIS – a technology already widely applied in many maritime applications • GIS can help develop MET schools • GIS can enhance academic capabilities through – Teaching maritime and related courses: • Teaching of GIS • Teaching with GIS – Maritime research • GIS can streamline campus management – Physical facilities and asset management – Campus natural-resource management – Result: Improved efficiency and reduced cost Page 15
  16. 16. So what is GIS? • GIS is a computerized system – Used to analyze the relationships between people, places, things, activities, and events – Represented by several data layers that have common geographic reference on earth – Can simulate future scenarios before seeing the actual event (data courtesy of Beaufort County GIS Dept). Page 16 Pearson Education, Inc., 2013
  17. 17. GIS System Process Spatial & Non-Spatial Data GIS Software Methods & Processes • • • • • System Data Processing Collect Record & manipulate Store, manage & retrieve Analyze & model Display Computer Software Manpower Information TRANSNAV 2013 Page 17
  18. 18. Maritime Spatial Data Infrastructure (MSDI) • Synonymous with GIS • A composite of geospatial data, software tools, and metadata for efficient use of information. • Assists for the planning, implementation, and assessment of spatially related content of maritime studies • Includes spatial information about marine transportation, port facilities, maritime security, marine hazards and incidents, MET students and alumni, greenhouse gas emissions, and environmental and meteorological data Page 18
  19. 19. EXAMPLES OF MARITIME GST USES Based on the 2007-2012 TRANSNAV scientific papers - 54 refereed papers, it can be surmised that the maritime industry employs GIS technologies in areas such as: 1. GPS and GPS-enabled communication systems 2. ECDIS 3. Automatic Identification System (AIS) 4. Remote sensing imagery http://www.nauticalcharts.noaa.gov/mcd/mcd.htm Page 19 http://www.lilleyandgillie.co.uk/landg/navmaster/ecdis.php TRANSNAV 2013

  23. 23. MAAP MET CURRICULUM BSMT curriculum: 155 units of Prof and Gen Ed courses BSMarE curriculum: 158 units of Prof and Gen Ed courses plus 40 units - one-year shipboard training Starting 2011, MAAP is the only school in the country authorized by CHED to offer vertically articulated maritime graduate programs (MSMT and MSMarE) Core courses can be enhanced with the integration of GIS topics relevant for future deck officers, faculty, and researchers TRANSNAV 2013 Page 23
  24. 24. Where GIS can be integrated in MET • Course topics that include locational or spatial component (e.g. location of events, people, and things) • Some MET/MAAP courses where GIS can be integrated: – – – – – – – – Information and communications technology (ICT) Transportation routes Meteorology Oceanography World geography Maritime pollution and prevention Search and rescue Chart and map making • GIS as a separate course (at least 3 credit units) Page 24
  25. 25. ACADEMIC CAPABILITY ENHANCEMENT USING GIS MAAP spearheaded institutional enhancement made possible thru capability building on GIS GIS mentor: Dr. Alejandro F Tongco, GIS Specialist from Oklahoma State University, had served as technical adviser, facilitator and trainer on GIS, organized by MAAP at various venues: Philippine Navy Education and Training Compound (March 7-10,201) Bataan Provincial Hall (March 13-16, 2012) MAAP and BPSU community (March 12, 17, 21-24, 2012) other HEIs (March 26-29, 2012) MAAP-DRES on the other hand trained the participants on how to write a GIS-based research project proposal TRANSNAV 2013 Page 25
  26. 26. ACADEMIC CAPABILITY ENHANCEMENT USING GIS “the real power of GIS is in analyzing the relationships of people, places, things, and events using several spatially referenced data layers representing the earth” (Dr. Al Tongco) the maritime components: people (e.g., mariners, maritime and shipping personnel, and MET students and faculty) places (e.g., ship destination, ports, shipping lanes, mariner’s and student’s addresses, and MET schools things (e.g. ships and watercraft, marine infrastructures and installations, protected marine sanctuaries, artificial reefs) events (e.g. transport routes/networks, hazards & incidents including fire, shipwrecks, groundings, oil & chemical spills, piracy) Page 26 TRANSNAV 2013
  27. 27. ACADEMIC CAPABILITY ENHANCEMENT USING GIS analysis and finding innovative ways, means and solutions to the shipping industry’s global challenges (GIS in maritime research and database management) integration of GIS techniques in METIs (GST competency model by the GeoTech Center (2012) improving the teaching methodologies and curriculum content Equip maritime graduates with GIS skills are not only honed with spatial analytical competence, but are more at ease as well with equipment and activities in the workplace that use GIS ( software skills) Provide graduates the opportunity to be analytical thinkers and to train them to be future researchers in the wide ocean of maritime research ( engage them in GIS –based R &D) TRANSNAV 2013 Page 27

  37. 37. CONCLUDING REMARKS An introduction into how GIS can be integrated in the MET curriculum, in research, and in campus management has been discussed. GIS can be introduced initially as one of the topics within existing maritime-related courses and can be used as a tool in field research work. With GIS-skilled faculty and staff researchers, GIS-based maritime researches can be developed. A GIS-based campus management system can grow hand in hand with that of GIS in teaching, research and extension services, constantly nourishing and building each other’s knowledge base toward an institution-wide integration of GIS technologies.
