The training course provided fundamental background on Geographic Information System (GIS) principles. It includes spatial data handling procedures such as data encoding, manipulation, storage and presentation. It introduces the concept of GIS-Based approach to analysis, monitoring and evaluation of the environment. It also includes the use of handheld devices and unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) in geographic data capturing. Finally, the course focuses with applications of GIS in the generation of geographic data and digital and printed maps.

The maps that are not updated are not effective. One of the things we learned from this training is, we can update our maps faster. We can use this especially in the environment, infrastructure, budget, and hazards).
Mr. Jomar J. Lucena, resource speaker and faculty at DMMMSU-NLUC, mentioned that GIS can be used in land use planning, environmental monitoring tax mapping, infrastructure and other sectors.
GIS maps provide visual, evidence-based insights for informed decision-making in different sectors, including marine and coastal areas. The GIS maps can be instrumental in mapping and monitoring our marine and coastal areas. It can delineate the extent and conditions of these areas and facilitate better management of Marine Protected Areas. It can also be used as a tool to identify overfished areas, fishing patterns, assess and mitigate coastal hazards such as erosion and storm surges. By using maps and spatial analysis, stakeholders can contribute local knowledge, prioritize conservation actions, and track progress towards shared goals.

Investing in Sustainability and Partnership for Inclusive Growth and Regenerative Ecosystems (INSPIRE) is a five-year grant facility of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) that aims to improve natural resource resilience and security through the increased participation and engagement of civil society organizations (CSOs), media, academe, and local communities. It envisions to expand civil society participation and influence in natural resource governance for greater accountability and better results and complementation of local conservation and climate change mitigation actions. The Gerry Roxas Foundation (GRF) is the lead implementing partner for INSPIRE.
