First Koronadal City GeoWalk and MapUp

The first GeoWalk and MapUp in Koronadal City is almost here!

What's GeoWalk and MapUp?
During GeoWalks, volunteer mappers walk by team to a predefined location in the city to hop on each business establishments and gather the basic information and take photos of the place. These info and photos are later uploaded to the web to "pin" business establishments and give them virtual presence through Google Maps, one of Google's powerful web technologies that can be used for business!

For the GeoWalk in Koronadal City, a.k.a. Marbel, one team will be mapping the business establishments along Alunan Avenue from the Roundball to SPDA compound. The second team will cover the Gen. Santos Drive from the same starting point to the old Marvella Plaza Hotel.

MapUp will follow in one of the computer rooms of STI College-Koronadal City.

The most recent GeoWalk activity was held in the business district of General Santos City along Santiago Boulevard last December 2013. Its success would not have been possible without the help of the city government of General Santos.

This effort in Marbel is also in support to the campaign of the city government to help improve local businesses through new technologies. Google Business Group - General Santos (GBG-Gensan) will be there to back the Koronadal Mappers. 

Muchos Gracias to the City Government of Koronadal and STI College - Koronadal City, our co-presentors/sponsors for the GeoWalk and MapUp - Koronadal.
