UP RI produces a map helpful for the rescue of landslide victims

Yesterday, a rain induced landslide hit Naga City, Cebu. So far, it has been reported that 21 people are dead with 74 missing. Because of this, Dr. Mahar Lagmay ordered some of the GIS experts of the UP Resilience Institute (UP RI) to map the building footprints that were buried by the landslide. Led by Ms. Feye Andal, UP RI used Open Street Map to plot out the households that were buried.

The map produced can be downloaded in this link:


Also, in his Facebook and Twitter accounts, Dr. Mahar Lagmay shared the additional information related to the landslide.
