FY-2009 Annual Accomplishment Report

I. Executive Summary

In 2009, the NAMRIA was able to make significant contribution to the

overall thrusts and programs of the DENR and the national government
through provision of geographic data and information as basic reference for
planning and decision-making.

The agency gained major accomplishments on its 17 regular projects

under the following major functions: (a) Hydrographic Surveys and Nautical
Charting; (b) Topographic Mapping; (c) National Geodetic Network Development;
(d) Land Classification; and (e) Information Management. Salient undertakings
were the PRS92 Project which aims to establish a homogenous geodetic
reference system for the country, and the locally-funded Extended Continental
Shelf (ECS) Project that would prove our entitlement for an ECS, to be
submitted to the United Nations (UN) in accordance with the United Nations
Convention of the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS).

In hydrographic surveys and nautical charting, NAMRIA conducted

survey of the countrys Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) and archipelagic waters
to ensure safety of navigation and delimit the countrys maritime boundaries in
large-scale charts as required by UNCLOS. The technical information gathered
shall be submitted to the UN as reference to resolve territorial boundary
conflicts with our neighboring countries. Notices-to-Mariners were published to
provide the maritime sector and other users with up-to-date navigational
information and ocean data. Tide Stations and the National Oceanographic
Data Center (NODC) were maintained and operated to provide year-long data on
sea level, periodic means of tidal datum planes and other tidal conditions to be
used by shipping, engineering and fisheries sectors as well as for scientific

NAMRIA provided full technical support to the Commission on Maritime

and Ocean Affairs (CMOA), the House of Representatives and the Senate for the
successful passage of Republic Act No. 9522, known as the New Archipelagic
Baselines Law of the Philippines. It is a landmark legislation and one of the key
Philippine actions toward the implementation of the United Nations Convention
on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS). The new baselines are compliant with
UNCLOS and are the basis from where the different maritime zones are
measured. The agency conducted series of meetings on the technical aspects of
RA 9522 and provided various options for the Philippine baselines.

The NAMRIA prepared the technical data for the claim on ECS
entitlement at Benham Rise area which was submitted to the United Nations
Commission for Extended Continental Shelf (UNCECS) on April 2009. It was
presented to the Commission en banc, in August 2009 by the Philippine
Country Team on the Philippine ECS Submission.

The agency continued the development of the countrys national geodetic

network through the Philippine Reference System of 1992 (PRS92) Project
which aimed to establish a homogenous and accurate geodetic network as
reference for all surveying and mapping activities in the country.

Topographic base mapping at different scales were undertaken to provide

updated information on infrastructure and other land features that reflect the
topography, drainage systems, vegetation, road networks and major landmarks.
These base maps were provided to PHIVOLCS, PAGASA and MGB for use in
geohazard mapping and other related disaster management activities. These

maps are also being widely used by LGUs, private sector and academe as
reference for local development planning, business and research activities.

Another major activity undertaken was land classification survey to

delineate the boundaries between forestlands and alienable and disposable
(A/D) lands. Evaluation and assessment surveys were conducted and LC maps
were finalized as legal references for agro-industrial development, reforestation,
policy formulation and fast-track the land distribution effort of the government
in support of poverty alleviation.

Under information management, NAMRIA developed and maintained

web-based systems and databases to support the initial establishment of the
National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI). Geographic information services
were made available through the NAMRIA Geomatics Training Center and the
NAMRIA One-Stop-Shop (OSS). The GTC conducted trainings for different
government offices, local government units, academe and the private sector on
GIS, GPS operations, map updating and database development. The OSS
provided geographic and ENR information services to various clients.

Major NAMRIA projects were also supported by information management

activities. These support components include map integration; information
systems development; and information, education, and communication (IEC)
campaigns. The 20 Map Sales Office in the different regions continued to
enhance the accessibility of NAMRIA products to map users all over the

Special projects with other government agencies and the private sector
were also undertaken on base mapping, geodetic surveys, and systems
development, namely: (a) UNDP READY (Geo-Hazard) Project; (b) Clark
Development Corporation (CDC) Boundary Mapping; (c) GMA Network
Digitization; (d) Technical Assistance on the Development of GIS-Based Real
Property Tax Information System for the Provincial Government of Bataan; and
(e) Forestry Information System (Phase 2).

Intervening activities include accommodating requests of various

agencies in the government, the academe and from private institutions for
digital base maps/satellite images, aerial photographs, certification on land
classification status, and provision of related geographic and natural resource

NAMRIA produced topographic base maps at various scales, as well as

thematic maps which served as primary inputs for national and local
development planning activities. These also serve as base data used by other
agencies such as MGB, PAGASA and PHIVOLCS in the production of geohazard
maps. These topo maps were produced using photogrammetry, satellite remote
sensing, digital cartography and Geographic Information System (GIS)

Large-scale Base Mapping (1:10,000): This project is

part of the continuous large scale mapping of urban and
high-growth areas of the country to detect rapid changes in
land features. Data gathered through aerial photography
undergo photogrammetric and digital cartographic
enhancement processes prior to mass production. Six (6)
sheets for Metro Manila at scale 1:10,000 were enhanced;
twenty one (21) sheets for Bulacan were compiled and
orthophoto mapping for the same area extending to an
additional of twenty two (22) sheets and nine (9) sheets for
Boracay were likewise completed. Aerial photography
covering Kalibo area was successfully conducted and

Medium Scale Mapping (1:50,000): The production and
updating of topographic base maps at this scale are
indispensable in the determination of areas at the
municipal and provincial levels that are susceptible to
geologic hazards such as soil erosion from rainfall, flooding,
storm surge, earthquake-induced landslides, soil
liquefaction, subsidence, volcanic upheavals and lahar flow.
A total of seventy two (72) out of 162 map sheets were
converted into digital format including elevations of contour
intervals, edge-matching, corrective editing and map layout;
forty (40) SPOT 5 satellite imageries were acquired and
nineteen (19) were processed.

Administrative/Special Mapping: This activity involved

the production of updated regional and provincial maps
based from topographic map at scale 1:50,000 and other
references as tools for development planning. Activities
completed were: data gathering, mosaicking, conversion
and cartographic enhancement for provincial maps; and
data gathering, mosaicking and geographic names indexing

The development of the national geodetic network through the Philippine

Reference System of 1992 (PRS92) Project continuously provided a
homogeneous geodetic reference for accurate survey and mapping of natural
resources, as well as administrative and cadastral boundaries. The project was
undertaken through the collaboration of the Regional Offices of the DENR.

The following were the accomplishments of PRS92 Project:

Geodetic Network Development: This component

established new and maintained existing geodetic control
points (GCPs) and updated the geodetic database to
expedite the referencing of surveys and maps to PRS92.
Established/observed fifty nine (59) out of the total target of
sixty five (65) Zero Order points; re-observed eleven (11) 1st
Order points; releveled 145.6 km. in Mega Manila; four (4)
clusters of inter-island benchmark connection; and
surveyed/established 37 gravity stations.

PRS92 Data Integration: This activity produced a set of

spatially consistent and precise datasets and developed
procedures, through research, on fundamental data build-
up by integrating all ENR maps in the DENR regional offices
into PRS92. Ninety seven (97) image control points (ICPs)
were established in Pangasinan, Antique and Marinduque
covering a total of 15 map sheets, four (4) scenes of SPOT 5

satellite imageries, GPS network design of ICPs and PCPs
for the remaining target mapsheets and satellite imageries
for Pampanga, Tarlac and Zambales were completed.
Installation, training and data input for the Land Survey
Project Information System (LSPIS) was completed. Regional
monitoring and evaluation of the 16 DENR-Land
Management Services (LMS) accomplishments for FY 2008
and assessment of targets for FY 2009 were also completed.
A total of 418 LC maps were processed; replotted 600 and
converted 418 LC lines and corners; evaluated 6 LC and 12
forest boundary lines and corners; transformed into PRS92
LC maps of the provinces of Biliran and Benguet;
conducted three (3) regional trainings on replotting of LC
maps for Regions 3, 9 & NCR; continued encoding PRS92
and other ENR Datasets for the province of Aurora,
Camarines Sur and Bataan; and continued downloading of
