Conference Paper
Full-text available
Access to near-real time information on the spatial distribution and detailed characteristics of the current and future (forecasted) flood scenarios is crucial for effective flood forecasting and early warning, especially when formulating decisions related to evacuation and response before, during, and after a flood scenario. In this paper, we pres...

In mitigating and helping lessen the possible effects and damages of disaster to the communities, the transmission of information or end products derived from remote sensing and other multidisciplinary technologies into the community should be immediate, accessible and comprehensive to aid in better planning and decision-making procedures. In this...
Article
Full-text available
Changes in land cover can have negative impacts on the hydrological and hydraulic processes in river basins and watersheds such as increase in surface runoff and peak flows, and greater incidence, risk and vulnerability of flooding. In this study, the impacts of land-cover changes to the hydrologic and hydraulic behaviours of the Agusan River Basin...

The Phil-LiDAR 1.B.14 Project, or simply known as the "CSU Phil-LiDAR 1 Project" is a three-year project implemented in April 1, 2014 by the Caraga State University through the Caraga Center for Geo-informatics of the College of Engineering & Information Technology, in Ampayon, Butuan City, Mindanao, Philippines. It is one of several projects under...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
In this paper, we characterize the flood hazards in an alluvial fan in Asiga Watershed in Agusan del Norte, Mindanao, Philippines through the use of high resolution topographic information derived from LiDAR and a suite of hydrologic and two-dimensional (2D) hydraulic models. The alluvial fan, with its active portion traversed by Asiga River, is of...

An automated approach for near-real time simulation and geo-visualization of flooding, including estimation of affected infrastructures, in Lake Mainit, considered the Philippines " deepest lake is presented. Perennial flooding in several areas around the lake due to increase in the lake " s water level during the rainy season and during the passin...
Article
Full-text available
In this paper, we present a combined geospatial and two dimensional (2D) flood modeling approach to assess the impacts of flooding due to extreme rainfall events. We developed and implemented this approach to the Tago River Basin in the province of Surigao del Sur in Mindanao, Philippines, an area which suffered great damage due to flooding caused...

In this paper, we discuss how an academe-local government partnership can lead the way for the effective use of geospatial technologies for smarter and geospatially-informed decision making before, during, and after a flood disaster. In Jabonga municipality, in the province of Agusan del Norte, in Mindanao, Philippines, two significant flooding eve...

In this paper, we present the methods and results for the assessment of flooding brought by two tropical storms in Tago river basin though integration of high resolution elevation datasets, satellite image analysis and numerical modeling. The datasets utilized in this paper include the 1-m spatial resolution LiDAR-derived Digital Terrain and Surfac...
Technical Report

Lake Mainit is considered to be the Philippine’s deepest lake with a maximum depth reaching about 223 m. It is geographically located between the Provinces of Surigao del Norte and Agusan del Norte, in the Island of Mindanao. With a surface area of 149.86 km2, it ranks fourth to Laguna Lake as one of the Philippine’s largest lakes. The lake receive...

This paper presents the preliminary results of an on-going project which aims to distinguish sago palm from other palm trees through the conduct of in-situ spectral response measurements. The measurements were carried out in the sago palm-rich municipalities of Bunawan, Agusan del Sur; Tagbina, Surigao del Sur; Jabonga, Agusan del Norte, and Butuan...

The Phil-LiDAR 1.B.14 Project, or simply known as the "CSU Phil-LiDAR 1 Project" is a three-year project implemented in April 1, 2014 by the Caraga State University through the Caraga Center for Geo-informatics of the College of Engineering & Information Technology, in Ampayon, Butuan City, Mindanao, Philippines. It is one of several projects under the “Phil-LiDAR-1. Hazard Mapping of the Philippines using LiDAR” program funded by the Department of Science and Technology (DOST). The Phil-LiDAR 1 Program aims to produce detailed flood hazard maps for the 2/3 of the Philippine river systems using LiDAR Technology. CSU Phil-LiDAR 1 in particular was implemented to generate flood hazard maps of twelve (12) river basins of Caraga Region (excluding the Agusan River Basin which has been covered by the UP DREAM Program). The project was able to generate a total of 12 sets of detailed flood hazard maps of the 12 RBs of Caraga Region; each set comprised of two (2) historical flood events and six (6) hypothetical extreme rainfall scenarios flood hazard maps (2, 5, 10, 25, 50 and 100-return periods). From these maps, we were able to generate a total of 41 sets of city/municipal level detailed flood hazard maps for 41 cities/municipalities of Caraga Region. Other major outputs includes 7,749.46 km of validated and bathymetry integrated, 1-m spatial resolution LiDAR data products that include Digital Terrain Model (DTM) and Digital Surface Model (DSM), the development and deployment of three (3) web-based applications for localized flood disaster management; 41 research publications (of which 32 are indexed in SCOPUS); and various partnerships between the project and LGUs.
