The annual Regional Science and Technology Week or RSTW held by the Department of Science and Technology IX will display LiDAR and LiPAD technologies on July 25-27 at the Zamboanga del Norte Convention and Sports Center in Dipolog City.

The mentioned technologies have been developed to aid in disaster mitigation, adaptation and risk reduction.

LiDAR or Light Detection and Ranging involve the recording of laser pulses emitted across the earth's surface. These recordings are then analyzed and interpreted to generate detailed, high-resolution 3D maps used in flood and hazard simulations.

The application for these maps is not limited for use in disaster modeling. Maps generated through LiDAR may also aid in planning and construction and energy resource mapping.

Acting as the program's safe keeper, LiPAD stores, manages, and disseminates the data generated through LiDAR.


LiPAD or LiDAR Portal for Archiving and Distribution gives easier access to local government and interested organizations to hazard maps that can help communities prepare for disaster. High–resolution flood hazard maps, orthophotographs and digital elevation models may be downloaded by agencies at the LiPAD website:

Aside from their respective displays, individuals representing the aforementioned programs will also take part in the RSTW's forum on Disaster Risk Reduction Management (DRRM) on July 26 at the Top Plaza Hotel in Dipolog City.

The RSTW is open to all interested individuals (S&T enthusiasts, entrepreneurs, students, researchers, inventors, innovators, professionals and the general public). ADMISSION IS FREE.
