The Department of Science and Technology (DOST) launched Tuesday the 3D Philippines information system, an online mapping platform for surface and subsurface data.

3D Philippines mainly features borehole data necessary to inform developers, planners and designers on subsurface characteristics. Borehole data is a requirement for high-rise upscale development.

“We need risk-informed and evidenced-based data to better understand risk and to prevent and mitigate risks more effectively,” said DOST Secretary Renato Solidum Jr. during the hybrid launch.

This online mapping platform, he said, helps in the management and analysis of borehole data, in 3D form. The web-based application will store and provide access to surface and subsurface information.

It was developed by the DOST, the DPWH and De La Salle University. Solidum said it aims to provide a centralized database system for storing and facilitating the analysis of surface and subsurface information, aiding research, planning, and disaster risk reduction initiatives.

“We need to consider all factors on the ground and below the ground. Through 3D models, we can better visualize and analyze various elements on the surface and below it, so that we can appropriately mitigate possible hazards,” Solidum said.

He added that suitability models would help the government proactively identify and select suitable locations for project sites, way before project proposals are submitted.

“Through this kind of automation, we will continually increase the ease-of-doing-business in the Philippines. In so doing, we will be able to save money and time,” he said.

The platform can be used by scientists, engineers, and community developers. (PNA)
