DIDP Technical Assistance on GIS
Early this year, the DIDP-GIS Unit assisted the Provincial Planning and Development Office (PPDO) of Davao del Sur in the survey of their proposed MRDP Communal Irrigation System Project located at Barangay Upper and Lower Malinao, Padada, Davao del Sur. The survey was conducted on January 10-14, 17-18 and February 8, 2011 and included an actual training of the PPDO Davao del Sur GIS staff on the operation of the Differential Global Positioning System (DGPS) and Total Station. The DIDP-GIS personnel who assisted the Davao del Sur PPDO were Engr. Michael Nacpil, Noel Dacanay and Bienvenido Galang Jr.
On January 24, 2011, the DIDP-GIS Unit extended support to DA RFU XI through the printing of the engineering plans and design of the proposed Seed Storage Building to be constructed at ROS Manambulan, Tugbok District, Davao City.
The DIDP-GIS Unit also assisted the Provincial Assessor's Office of Compostela Valley Province last April 7, 2011 by scanning the Cadastral Maps of nineteen (19) barangays of the Municipality of Montevista for their Real Property Tax System. DIDP-PMO is willing to assist its member-LGUs on GIS related tasks. The LGUs just submit their letter requests to the PMO for the scheduling of activities.
