The Philippines Launches 3DPH Information System

To produce a consolidated database system for 3D visualisation and analysis of surface and subsurface information, the 3D Philippines Information System was created and led by the Department of Science and Technology-Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (DOST-PHIVOLCS) and the De La Salle University (DLSU).

This initiative is monitored by the Department of Science and Technology-Philippine Council for Industry, Energy, and Emerging Technology Research and Development (DOST-PCIEERD) in collaboration with the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH).

An output of the 3D Philippines Programme, the 3D Philippines Information System is a web-based application that was created as a platform to offer researchers from national government agencies, local government units, and other sectors a centralised database system for storing, accessing and facilitating hazards and risk assessment of surface and subsurface information. The 3D Philippines fully supports the government’s drive for digital transformation to simplify operations and integrate, among other things, risk and hazard assessments.

One of the goals of 3D Philippines, according to Dr Teresito C. Bacolcol, PHIVOLCS Officer-in-Charge, is to incorporate borehole information into the GeoRiskPH Platform so that researchers can view subsurface information and subsequently assess subsurface conditions for geotechnical designs. “Our engineers would benefit greatly from the three-dimensional image we obtain with the borehole information integrated into the system.”

The System supports GeoRiskPH in managing and analysing scientific data to support programmes for research, planning, and disaster risk reduction. The goal of PHIVOLCS is to create a 3D workspace where scientists, engineers, and planners may work together. The organisation is hopeful that they will be able to develop a system that allows users to move things in a virtual reality environment and has envisioned putting this 3D facility nearby.

Publicly accessible platforms like HazardHunterPH and GeoAnalyticsPH will make 3D visualisation available to the general population. To let concerned stakeholders know that information on boreholes is available, the platforms will also indicate the general location of boreholes at different zoom levels.

More than 100 participants from the National Housing Authority (NHA), National Irrigation Authority (NIA), National Water Resources Board (NWRB), and local government entities are expected to benefit from the training session.

Meanwhile, the people, communities, and local governments should not be complacent about the potential hazards and repercussions of tsunamis in their territories, according to officials and experts from the DOST-PHIVOLCS.

Diverse tsunami-prone localities have been receiving services from DOST-PHIVOLCS. To ensure that all LGUs are prepared to develop an appropriate and coordinated response action plan for the residents, it also entails monitoring, cascading pertinent information and warnings down to the local and barangay areas in various platforms and possible ways, and risk assessment.

The public, LGU officials, and responders can browse technology-based and mobile applications like Hazard Hunter, REDAS, and GeoRiskPH, which will eventually help them not only on the monitoring side but also to have a better understanding of various possible tsunami risks and hazards in particular areas.

The DOST-PHIVOLCS websites and social media profiles are among the channels that the agency has stressed as being useful in assisting every LGU in making better decisions. Since the Philippines is an archipelago and earthquakes frequently occur, it is crucial to have the proper knowledge regarding tsunamis and to be prepared for them.

The local government units in the nation are urged by DOST-PHIVOLCS to build and improve their tsunami warning systems and evacuation strategies to safeguard every Filipino, particularly those who live in coastal areas.
