Track: National Mapping
Authors: Damasa Macandog
The Philippines Department of Science and Technology (DOST) embarked on a nationwide assessment of natural resources using LiDAR technology. The research project generally aims to produce detailed resource maps. Specifically, it aims to automate feature extraction from LiDAR data and various types of remotely-sensed data. The program aims to produce high resolution maps for high value crops (HVCs), renewable energy sources, irrigation and hydrology, coastal resources and forest resources.
