FLOOD HAZARD MAPS

Flood hazard maps of cities and municipalities within Caraga Region that have been generated by UP Diliman  through the UP DREAM Program, and through the collaboration of CSU Phil-LiDAR 1 Project and UP Diliman through the Phil-LiDAR 1 Program, are now available for download through the LiDAR Portal for Archiving and Distribution or LiPAD. While the maps can be searched and downloaded via LiPAD, we have prepared below a simple flood hazard map query tool that will forward the user to the corresponding LiPAD download page of the selected flood hazard map.

LiPAD serves as the primary data access and distribution center of the Phil-LiDAR 1 and Phil-LiDAR 2 Programs (www.dream.upd.edu.ph), a Department of Science and Technology initiative that engages the University of the Philippines-Diliman and fifteen (15) Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) throughout the country, one of which is Caraga State University (CSU). CSU in collaboration with UP Diliman aims to produce detailed flood hazard and resource maps using LiDAR technology for Caraga Region.

The datasets, which include Digital Elevation Models (DEMs), Digital Terrain Models (DTMs), Orthophotos, Classified LAZ, Flood Hazard Maps and Resource Maps, are available for download in open and GIS-ready formats, for use by Local Government Units (LGUs), National Government Agencies (NGAs), members of the academe, and researchers, among others.

We strongly encourage everyone to register with LiPAD (https://lipad.dream.upd.edu.ph/datarequests/register/), and take advantage of available datasets that can be readily downloaded or requested via the LiPAD portal.

The map above displays model-simulated flood inundation (in semi-transparent blue) in some water bodies (rivers, lakes) in Caraga Region. If there is flooding due to overflowing of the water body, there will be expansion in the inundation extent(s). To know the date and time of the displayed inundation, click on the blue lines. The inundation map is updated every 10-minutes depending on availability of water level data from monitoring stations. Also included are water level forecast at different locations in major rivers. The forecast graphs, which are updated every 10 minutes, can be viewed by clicking on any marker. Water level forecasts for the Agusan River are courtesy of the UP DREAM/Phil-LiDAR 1.

Click-and-drag on the map to adjust the view. To zoom-in or out, use the tool bars found on the upper left portion of the map. Click on “Map”, or “Satellite” to change the background image to map, satellite image, or terrain, respectively. To ensure you are viewing the latest inundation extent and the water level forecasts, you have to manually refresh your browser. [Note: A network-linked KML file is also available for download and can be viewed in Google Earth.]
