Selected features from various themes were overlayed to form the map including features from the Slope Map and the Network of Protected Areas for Agriculture and Agro-Industrial Development (NPAAAD) of the Bureau of Soil and Water Management, Hazard Maps from the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PhIVolcs), and, outputs from various planning activity workshops. Base map features were digitized from the National Mapping and Resource Information Authority (NAMRIA) Topographic Map sheets scaled at 1:50,000 using heads-up digitizing method.
