EnP Board Review Series: Presentation on Planning & Information Management

I had the pleasure of helping out during the 2016 UP Plano Board Exam Coaching Sessions, and was tasked to give a review on planning and information management. This is a compilation of selected topics on planning data, beginning with hierarchies and structures, and continuing well into frameworks, statistical analysis on socio-economic information (population projection and demography, location quotients, etc.) familiarisation with research terms, and an overview of GIS history. I picked out said topics because the exam questions on data and information revolve around these.

Items needed: Calculator, pen and scratch paper

And here are some of the games we played during my lecture. I used the games as a chance to review the earlier sessions on the origin of the city, and theories on urban and regional planning. This may be helpful for your review, too, especially with your study buddies. (Try to see who gets the most points!)

The presentations are downloadable and set to public in Slideshare, so feel free to use them.

I asked participants to solve population projection and location quotient problems for practice. Photo courtesy of Lala Magayanes.

Thanks to everyone who gave very positive and wonderful feedback. 🙂 If you need help reviewing other information (such as IRA, land areas, and other baseline in different sectors), just leave me a comment and I will be glad to help.

Here are the other parts of my blog board review series:
