Bukidnon MapUp

Bukidnon MapUp event was held at Green Ridge Apartelle, Capitol Grounds, Malaybalay City, Bukidnon last August 25, 2012. Attended by 15 participants both from private and Government sector all with a vision of putting the City within the forest(and beyond) in the google maps. 

I have been a google fan long before yahoo was introduced to me. I use gmail for my emails, I use blogger as my blogging platform for this blog, I upload videos on youtube, and ohh I have an android phone. I use google maps on finding a certain place when I travel and most especially when I travel solo. I even used my phone to locate MOAP when I visited Ozamiz City and Cebu City earlier this year.With that amazing things brought to us by google, it is no wonder that they came up with a greater service, The Google Map maker which was launched on 2008.It allow user to add and edit maps, users may contribute their local knowledge to make a more detailed and comprehensive map of the changing world. Who knows your place better than you do? Start mapping up your neighborhood.

Personally, my purpose in joining this event is to increase and to add more information in my merely rustic brain. I love learning new stuff and meeting great people at the same time. I know, once we fully mapped Bukidnon, I am sure this is going to be a great help in boosting our tourism in Bukidnon as a whole. As an adventure enthusiast, I would love to add our tourist attractions to google maps so when people ask me what my home province has to offer, I can answer them with a smirk and hand them a hefty amount of places to visit, plus! it can easily be located. We don't just have the usual go-to tourist attraction which is Dahilayan Park, We have more than that and I am pretty much willing to add that to the map.

The event that was started with a prayer and singing of Bukidnon Hymn was followed by the Introducing of the guest speakers, Avel Manansala, Alexis Chua and Dr. Remo Aguilar. Yes, the celebrity bloggers of SOCCSKSARGEN !

Program officially started with a prayer, Singing of the Philippine National anthem, singing of the Bukidnon hymn, introducing of the guest speakers and workshop proper.
