  • Good day!

    I am the Regional Monitoring and Evaluation Officer III of Kalahi CIDSS – NCDDP in Region VII. As part of our data collection and analysis, we have used the capabilities of smartphone devices to get the exact location of our subprojects through the use of a technique known as geotagging. In connection with this, may I ask your good office if you have an available Boundary Map up to the barangay level in shapefile format. This will allow us to create Hazard maps using your official boundary map used in the province to give us better visual reference for presentation and for analytical purposes.

    If it happen that this data is available in your office, please let me know how I can get/acquire the data from your office through my email, my mobile number, and our office number in Cebu City. Hoping that you consider our request.

    Thank you very much!

      Hi Nelmar,

      We’re sorry PPDO-Bohol does not have such data. We are only using the administrative boundaries that we have downloaded from the GADM Website. However, I heard some municipalities had received hard copies as well as CAD files of the Political Boundary Survey (PBS) conducted by DENR, which I think is much more accurate than GADM. Perhaps you can inquire from the municipalities of your project coverage if they have those. You may also inquire from DENR if they have those files.

      • @Willy Bueno,

        Thank you sir for your reply. Just checked this thread, and it was a while. I have already asked the DENR but they don’t have “official” boundary map that they can give us, further stating that even in their thematic maps, they do not put boundaries. Again, your reply is very much appreciated, thank you!

        PS: I don’t know who replied the “ok” comment…
