The Philippines is officially participating in the establishment of regional geologic maps through the 1:5M International Geological Map of Asia Project (IGMA5000), under the auspices of the Commission on the Geological Map of the World (CGMW), undertaken by a consortium composed primarily of state geological surveys, geological institutes and related entities. Initial Philippine contributions include the existing 1:1M Geologic Map of the Philippines and the 2004 edition of the Geology and Mineral Resources of the Philippines. These contributions are in the process of being formatted according to the specifications of the IGMA5000. The first regional outputs are expected to be presented at the 33rd International Geological Congress (IGC) in August 2008.
