Track: Research & Sciences
Authors: Edwin Abucay
Phil-LiDAR program aims to cover 2/3 of river basins in the country. The project conducts field validation, data processing (9/52) and flood modeling (43/52) of river basins in Region IVB. Toolbars in ArcGIS were developed to automate data processing and to extract buildings and houses from LiDAR data sets. LiDAR data gathered by the program can serve a vital input in various applications that would benefit stakeholders and agencies in the country in addressing natural hazards and disasters.
