It was originally slated on September 23-24, 2013 at UST’s Thomas Aquinas Research Complex (TARC) Auditorium, España, Manila but was postponed due to bad weather.

 This gathering of cultural heritage mappers from all over the country aims to review mapping practices and how this technique has substantially contributed to community development.

A minimal registration fee OF Two Thousand Five Hundred Pesos (Php 2,500.00) will be required to cover conference kit, food and culinary tour.
