Recognized as a prime partner in GIS utilization, NEDA-R02 established the RGIN at ISU to become the hub of GIS training, utilization, and advancement. Through the RGIN, GIS had become an organic component of ISU’s R&D activities.

The following are the significant outputs of RGIN:

  • Established the GPS tracks of the Proposed Ilagan-Divilacan Road Project of the Provincial Government of Ilagan which was used as baseline information for the EIA (2012);
  • GIS database and climate change adaptation for the Abra and Apayao-Abulug River Basin Masterplans (2012-2013);
  • Accessed/utilized the RGIN’s Geospatial Data Holdings (e.g. provincial, municipal, barangay maps, watersheds, flood maps) for the R & D projects, EIA and River Basin Masterplan Formulation, among others (2012-present)
