    • Hello Cath, thank you for the comment. The map was created in 2009. However the data was digitized from an undated map that was produced using data from Bureau of Soils and Water Management (BSWM), as our source claimed, though they didn’t mention about the date of the original data. Browsing through the BSWM website, I can’t find the said map source that was mentioned. We’re sorry we can’t provide you any further details.

  1. Hello sir,
    We are two students who are doing research on Bohol, and we were wondering who we should contact to ask if we could get some of these maps as a dwg file in order to overlay and work further with them?
    Thanks!

    • It would depend on what data to reflect on the map. If it’s the Land Use / Vegetation you need, that data is very old and is no longer fit for planning environment. Note that we don’t usually have data suitable for scales down to a specific barangay, much more down to an island or islet.
