Dr. Enrico Paringit, DREAM Program Leader, to speak during PhilGEOS 2012

Dr. Enrico C. Paringit, Associate Professor at the Department of Geodetic Engineering, University of the Philippines, will be one of the plenary speakers during the PhilGEOS 2012. The title of his talk is “Entering a New Era of Remote Sensing in the Philippines: Perspectives, Prospects and Challenges“.

Dr. Paringit heads a Department of Science and Technology (DOST)-funded project called Disaster Risk Exposure Assessment Mitigation (DREAM) Program which aims to acquire spatial data or geographic information of 18 major river basins of the Philippines (which is at least one third of the country’s total land area) using Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) technology.  The data acquired will be used to develop flood hazard models that would produce detailed and updated flood hazard maps for critical river systems.  >>Read more >>
